Christmas Is In the Air!

As soon as the Thanksgiving plates are cleared, the holiday events kick off in Morris County.

I hope you didn't miss the horsedrawn carriage rides, hot cider, live Christmas carolers and displays in downtown Denville yesterday. Even if you didn't make it, there are plenty of fun activities to get in the spirit this weekend:

1 pm: the Boonton holiday parade kicks off at 1 pm. Hang out by Santaland (across the street from GraceLord Park) to enjoy a small petting zoo, free cookies and beverages and pony & train rides. And, a visit from the big guy himself.
5 pm (through 9 pm): Free holiday lights show at the Turtleback Zoo

1 pm (through 7 pm): Kids can take a free ride on a small train around the Morristown Green.
1 pm: Free filled Christmas mint making candy demo at AC Moore stores.
1:30 pm: Mooseltoe the musical is on at the Community Theatre in Morristown. It's about a moose that wants to fly with Santa's reindeer. You can buy tickets here.
2 pm: Denville's holiday parade begins at 2 pm. After the parade Santa will resume his rightful position within Santaland the lights will officially go on!
5 pm (through 9 pm): Free holiday lights show at the Turtleback Zoo
