A little drizzle did not dampen the spirits of children and adults who attended Tuesday night’s downtown Winterfest at the North Bergen Rec Center and Library on Kennedy Boulevard. Mayor Nicholas Sacco and the Board of Commissioners were on hand to wish residents a happy holiday season.
There were bouncy houses for the kids, free cookies and hot chocolate, hot dogs, and free giveaways from the Hudson County Sheriff’s Department. Photos were also available with Santa Claus.
A stage was set up outside where students from local elementary schools performed holiday songs for a crowd of several hundred residents from the local neighborhood. A mid-town Winterfest was also held on Tuesday night at the 45th Street Nutrition Center.
