Rumson, NJ –  Rumson, NJ will celebrate the holiday season with a traditional Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration at 5 p.m. on Sunday, December 7 in Victory Park. All Rumson residents are welcome to attend.

The evening’s festivities will include musical entertainment by local groups Tim McLoone & the Shirleys, select members of Holiday Express, the Rumson-Fairhaven Tower Singers and the Dean Porter Third Grade Chorus.

There will also be a light show to accompany the festivities, and Santa, Mrs. Claus, Rudolf, Frosty and Santa’s helpers are planning to attend as well.
