Mayor Nicholas Sacco and the Board of Commissioners welcomed residents and guests to two separate Winter Celebrations on the evening of Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017.
Festivities took place downtown at the Food Bazaar parking lot and midtown at the Nutrition Center. Santa and Mrs. Claus managed to magically be on hand for free family photos at both sites. Other activities included music from various school choruses, train rides, games, and face painting, along with free popcorn, cotton candy, and treats.
North Bergen’s own Schripps European Bread generously donated 700 pretzels for free distribution at the two sites.
The event was postponed from Dec. 5 due to inclement weather.
