New Date: Tree-Lighting and Santa Claus Scheduled for Fitzpatrick Park Moved to Wednesday, December 7
Mayor Jimmy Davis announced that the City of Bayonne’s annual Christmas tree-lighting ceremony at Fitzpatrick Park has been moved from Tuesday, December 6, to Wednesday, December 7, at 4:45 p.m. The park is located immediately south of City Hall on Avenue C, between 26th and 27th Streets. The event was moved to December 7, due to the rainy weather that has been forecast for December 6.
Mayor Davis will light the municipal tree, which will be adorned with multi-colored miniature lights. First Grade students from Horace Mann Community School will sing Christmas carols. Santa Claus will come to the park during the event. His arrival will conclude the program.
The tree will illuminate the park throughout the holidays. Mayor Davis thanked the Public Works, Parks, and Recreation employees for preparing the park and other municipal facilities for the holiday season.
