The Christmas Festival at the Morristown Green will once again bring the magic and wonder of the season to the town’s famous Green. Decked out in holiday finery, the Morristown Green will become a wonderland of nostalgia during the month-long festival. Visits and photos with Santa, holiday crafts, ice sculpture demonstrations, a vintage-style rocking horse and rides on a miniature train will all return to delight the children while families bask in the glow of thousands of dazzling lights.
The event kicks off on Sunday, November 28th with Santa’s arrival on North Park Place and the 100+ year traditional lighting of the Morristown Green starting at 5:00 p.m. The evening will continue with Santa visits and photos until 8 p.m., as well as seasonal entertainment and hot chocolate and cookies courtesy of event sponsor, Hyatt Regency Morristown.
Family activities, entertainment and Santa visits and photos will take place each Saturday and Sunday from Noon to 7 p.m. throughout December until December 19th, as well as three Fridays (December 3rd, 10th and 17th) from 3 to 8:00 p.m. Activities are free to visitors, with the exception of a $10 fee for a photo with Santa.
