Menorah, Tree Lighting Celebrate Holidays in Hopatcong
Families gather to see Santa, enjoy holiday spirit.
More than 100 residents braved the cold and rainy temperatures Sunday evening and came together to celebrate the holiday season.
Starting the celebrations off was a Menorah lighting for the second night of Hanukkah at the Municipal Building, followed by latkes at the Lake Hopatcong Community Jewish Center.
Later in the evening, residents filled Borough Hall and listened to Christmas carols by the Byram Bay Christian Church and Joe Tree before the tree was lit.
Families warmed up with hot chocolate as Santa arrived on a Hopatcong Fire Department truck where he handed out candy to the children.
