Roselle Park Annual Winter Market

The Borough of Roselle Park is hosting their Annual Winter Market from Friday, December 4th, until Sunday, December 6th at Michael Mauri Gazebo Park. The festivities will kick off at 4 pm on Friday, December 4th, with the Winter Market, tree lighting, and free kids activities. Saturday and Sunday will be open from 2-8 pm and will feature the Winter Market, live performances, and kids’ activities. Additionally, all three nights will feature food trucks and a Biergarten.

Governor Murphy’s Executive Order regarding social distancing and mask-wearing will be enforced by the Roselle Park Police.

“After such a challenging year, I could not be happier to announce we will be moving forward with our Winter Market,” said Roselle Park Mayor Joe Signorello. “With live music, food trucks, kids activities, and a Biergarten planned, the Winter Market will be our best Winter celebration yet.”

Santa’s Parade of Lights @ Roselle Park, NJ
Dec 4 @ 7:00 pm
Santa’s Parade of Lights @ Roselle Park, NJ | Roselle Park | New Jersey | United States

On Friday, December 4th, at 7 pm, Roselle Park is hosting Santa’s Parade of Lights. The parade will feature Santa Claus and will pause near the intersection of Chestnut Street and Grant Avenue, near Michael J. Mauri Park, for a quick, ceremonial Christmas Tree lighting.

The parade will be lead by the lights and sirens of the Roselle Park Police Department, followed by a float consisting of the Mayor and Council and Councilmembers-elect, followed by the lights and sirens of the Roselle Park Fire Department, followed by “New Jersey Jeep Flow” playing festive holiday music, and finally a float with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus welcoming the holiday season.

For the safety of all, parade participants will be limited only to the above-listed groups and individuals. Residents are encouraged to watch from their front porches, yards, or sidewalks as the parade passes by. In the alternative, while being sure to maintain social distancing, residents may choose to watch the parade pass by at a scenic watchpoint in one of the Borough’s parks or open spaces along the route below.

“As the Covid-19 cases rise in our community, it is important we do our best to keep the spirit of the holidays alive,” said Roselle Park Mayor Joe Signorello. “Although our children are not able to meet Santa in-person and tell him their Christmas wishes this year, we hope seeing Santa ride through their neighborhood will bring joy and smiles to our children’s faces during these challenging times.”

For more information about Santa’s Parade of Lights, please contact the Casano Community Center at 908-245-0666.
