The Annual Christmas Tree Lighting and Visit with Santa will take place at 5 pm, on Sunday, December 8, at the Gazebo on Main Street in Chester.
The tree lighting marks the official start of the holiday season in Chester. Musical entertainment will be provided by the West Morris Mendham HS Saxophone Quartet, Brass Choir, and chorus beginning at 5:00 pm.
Santa arrives via fire truck courtesy of the Chester Volunteer Fire Company at approximately 5:20 pm. Children are invited for individual visits with Santa to share their holiday wish lists. All from the community are welcome to join us for this free event.
These activities are sponsored by Chester Recreation with gratitude to the Chester Garden Club for running the event for 25 years. This is an evening of fun for all ages, not just those with little ones! Please come out and join your neighbors for a special way to start the holiday season.
