The annual Holiday Festival was well attended this year by families and friends who came downtown to visit businesses, greet Santa, see the NPHS marching band, and enjoy the fantastic fireworks show sponsored by NP Fuel. Most businesses were open handing out treats, offering games and prizes and providing photo ops with friendly costumed characters. There were also snow machines, strolling carolers and a stilt walker to entertain the crowd, and hot pretzels for sale by the NPHS band boosters.
“We were so happy to sponsor the event again this year,” said Michele Elefante, Business Community President. “It is a great way for New Providence businesses to show how much they enjoy giving back to our community, and to remind our residents that they can do all of their holiday shopping right here in town!”
The evening would not have been possible without the generous financial support from our sponsors and donors:
Advanced Financial Credit Union
Body Align Physical Therapy
NJ Sharing Network
NP Downtown Improvement District
Peapack Private Wealth Management
Union County Board of County Commissioners
Your Kid’s Urgent Care
A special thanks to NP Fuel for very generously sponsoring the wonderful fireworks! We would also like to thank the New Providence Fire Department and Rescue Squad, the NP Police Department, and the Department of Public Works for making sure the event was safe and enjoyable for everyone.
