Fanwood’s holiday season officially begins when Santa Claus arrives in town on Sunday, December 8th, at 3 PM! Everyone is invited to meet Santa under the big tent on the lawn in front of the North Avenue Train Station and enjoy an afternoon of seasonal music, holiday crafts and refreshments—all for free. Children who stop by to say hello to Santa will get a free photograph of their visit with him. And children can also enter contests and win prizes. The Celebration concludes at 5 PM when Mayor Mahr lights the Fanwood town tree on the train station lawn. Sponsored by the Fanwood Recreation Commission.
