4:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Newport Town Square will be the perfect representation of “merry and bright” with the return of the community’s beloved celebration for the holidays, which attracts thousands from the community every year and will feature:
o A professionally lit 30-foot tree
o A synchronized light-and-music show across Newport’s Town Square
o Meet-and-greets with Santa and his elves
o Hot cocoa, coffee and cider and freshly baked holiday cookies provided by Jersey City’s Skylark on the Hudson
This year’s tree lighting count down will be led by News 12 New Jersey star and proud Hudson County resident, Marisa Brahney, who will be joined by Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop.
