Seton Village Kicks off the Holiday Season with ‘Light Up the Holidays in Seton Village!’

December 8, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

With the onset of the holiday season, South Orange, NJ’s Seton Village Committee is delighted to “Light Up the Holidays in Seton Village” for the fourth year in a row. This year’s annual community tree lighting celebration will take place on Friday, December 8.


The celebration, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and will be held in and around the pocket park at Irvington and West Fairview Avenues in the Seton Village neighborhood of South Orange. The lighting of the 20-foot tree that borders the park will take place just after the arrival of the evening’s special guest: Santa Claus. Mr. Claus, who will be accompanied by Seton Hall University’s mascot, the Pirate, will also be available for picture taking throughout the evening.

A selection of crafts for kids will be on hand to keep families busy. In addition to kids’ activities, the event will feature music from a variety of local entertainers, including a performance from Seton Hall University’s a cappella group The Gentlemen of the Hall; a preview of interACT Theater Productions’ upcoming production of Black Nativity; several numbers from Seton Village-based performing arts studio Class Act; and the crowd-pleasing stylings of Columbia High School’s a cappella group Unaccompanied Minors.
