Down Broad Street and around Park Square



Assemble with your lanterns and other creations for the Lantern Light Parade at the parking lot at a NEW location:  the parking lot of St. John’s Lutheran Church.  Dress very warmly in festive garb and join with hundreds of Westfield families as they march down Broad Street and around the town green. The Westfield on Weekends Parade committee will be there to place you and your family in the line of march as UNIT B.  Pick up and drop off for participants in the loop in front of church with parking for marchers only in the rear parking lot.

Directly following the Lantern Light Parade, the Mayor’s Tree Lighting sparkles at Park Square, the town green.   Acting Mayor Ralph Figy together with city officials and faith leaders will light the twinkling lights of the city’s 20-foot holiday tree. This year’s special musical entertainment is provided by the incomparable Westfield High School Show Choir, ably led by director Korey Bruno. Hot cocoa will be provided by Mt. Moriah Lodge and Santa and Mrs. Claus will greet folks who wish to visit after the ceremony in the pavilion. It’s a true celebration of Westfield’s multicultural community.
