Santa Lights Braddock Park Christmas Tree

Santa Claus made his way to North Bergen’s James J. Braddock Park to light the township’s Christmas tree on Wednesday night.

The tree lighting came a week late due to bad weather, and although it felt like rain was in the air last night, it held off, allowing for a joyous tree lighting celebration.

              The North Bergen High School choir sang holiday songs; cookies, hot chocolate and doughnuts were provided and local officials wished all in attendance a happy holiday season.

              This was the sixth year that North Bergen and the County of Hudson held a joint tree lighting ceremony in Braddock Park.
