The Cranford Chamber of Commerce has announced its upcoming holiday events for November, which include a full day of activities on Nov. 27, beginning at 11 a.m., with the Daisies, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors decorating the Holiday Tree located in Mayor’s Park on the corner of Springfield and N. Union avenues.
Afternoon events will begin at 1 p.m., with a Face Painter, Moon Walk, and Horse Drawn Wagon rides which will be located in Parking Lot No. 7 on Miln Street. These events will run until 4 p.m. Investors Bank and Arnold’s Pest Control co-sponsor these events. The Cranford Jaycees will provide the hot chocolate.
At 4 p.m., the Celebration Singers will perform on the stage located by the Holiday Tree on N. Union and Springfield avenues, followed by the High School Madrigals and the Brass Ensemble at 5 p.m. Santa will arrive for the lighting of the township holiday tree at 6 p.m. escorted by the Cranford Fire Department.
The chamber will be available to take photos of the children with Santa for a price of $3 and each child will receive a candy cane from Santa. In addition, each family will receive a “Small Business Saturday” canvas bag filled with information and valuable coupons from our many local businesses in Cranford.
Santa’s mailbox will be inside the Post Office from Nov. 25 to Dec. 18. Santa letters must have a return address, as Santa replies to each letter received.
We hope you agree that our local Cranford businesses are a big part of what makes our community so wonderful. Small Business Saturday, a day dedicated to supporting local businesses, is November 28th. A number of our local businesses will have sales and promotional events to celebrate and kick off the holiday shopping season. There will also be FREE PARKING in parking lots all day Saturday. We hope you choose Downtown Cranford businesses for your holiday shopping!
