Pennsauken Christmas Tree Lighting

December 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Pennsauken Township’s tree lighting ceremony returns on Wednesday, Dec. 4, from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. at the Township Municipal Complex, 5605 N. Crescent Blvd. The evergreen tree outside of the Municipal Building is already ornately decorated for the holidays; and this year’s event has a “Frozen” theme. Snow will fall on participants, regardless of the weather, courtesy of the Pennsauken Fire Department’s snow maker. Also, a certain winter princess and her favorite snowman pal will also be in attendance for photo opportunities.

Several food trucks will be on hand for attendees to enjoy something to eat during the event; musical entertainment will be provided via the Eagles Pep Band; and children will be able to enjoy making sand art ornaments.

A very popular person this time of year, Santa Claus will arrive via fire engine at 6:00 p.m. to light the tree. Residents are encouraged to bring their phones and cameras, as Santa will be available for photos with children after the tree lighting. A trackless train will shuttle attendees to visit Saint Nicholas. There is no rain date for this event.
