Hackettstown BID Tree Lighting…..THIS Friday, December 4 at 5:30pm.  Although we are not able to gather as we normally would, we encourage the community to drive by and wave to Santa at the Hackettstown Gazebo (corner of Main and Moore) as well as to see the Tree Lit (Tree Lighting approx 5:30pm).  We also encourage the community to continue your support  of our Hackettstown Businesses.   Please come to town Friday night, as through the  Holiday season, to shop, dine, and visit the breweries.  They need our support during this time….so please SHOP SMALL ALL SEASON LONG!  Also, while shopping downtown, you can bring your little ones to the Gazebo (Corner of Main and Moore) to drop a letter to Santa.  There will be a Santa Mailbox at the Gazebo starting Friday,December 4 – Please visit…this is a GREAT photo opportunity for you and your family!  
 
The Hackettstown Fire Department will be driving through town with Santa on their truck on Friday, December 4 from 6-8pm (rain date, Sat, Dec 12 during the day time…time to be determined).  While Santa would love to drive down EVERY street, he may not be able to do so. So please listen for the fire truck sirens which will announce Santa’s Arrival to your area.  Please make your way to the closest main street/cross road if you live on a side street so that you can wave to Santa.  Due to the pandemic, Santa will not be stopping or handing out candy at this time. However, look out for information about the Candy Cane Lane Event which will be held on Saturday December 12 from 5-7pm at Riverfront Park hosted by the Hackettstown BID and the Hackettstown Recreation Department.   You will be able to see Santa during your drive through experience and receive a goody bag at this event
