Mount Holly, NJ – Come celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at Mount Holly’s Annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, December 6, 2019 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mount Holly’s downtown district will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland for this family-friendly event, sponsored by Mount Holly Township. This event is free and open to the public.
The celebration will feature live performances from a variety of acts, including but not limited to the Lumberton school of music, Mount Holly Township School children’s choir, Dansation School of Dance and more.
Santa, Mrs. Claus and their elves will also make an appearance, helping to light the township’s Holiday Tree, located at the intersection of Washington and High Streets, with more than 3,000 lights. Once the tree is lit, all will be invited to have their pictures taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Several roads will be closed throughout the evening’s event to accommodate pedestrian foot traffic. Road closures begin at 5:00 p.m., and include: High Street from Rancocas/Garden to Washington Street; and Mill Street from Pine to Park Drive. Alternate routes will be made available, and Mount Holly Police Officers will be onsite to direct traffic around the closures, and will provide members of the media guidance as to where they should park.
Media will have access to closed roads – Pine Street/Mill Street to Washington Street/Park Drive – and will be allowed to pull right into the event for easy loading/unloading and use of equipment. Please note: free, designated Media parking will be available in municipal lots – ideal lot location is the far back municipal lot, one block away from tree lighting location.
