Tree Lighting-Asbury Park

Many 3rd grade kids may be getting wish lists ready for Santa Clause but Eleanor Johnson, who attends Carver Elementary School, had a unique wish. Eleanor wrote the city of Asbury with her idea that they might host a tree lighting ceremony to, in her words, so that everyone could be a little bit more merry. Kayla Morrison, Parks and Recreation Department Director, says the city followed up and now they will host an event at Asbury Park on Friday, December 6th from 7 to 7:45 pm. The evening will feature Santa and songs by Eleanor’s classmates.¬†Morrison says the night will end with Eleanor helping light the new Christmas tree that has been planted. She encourages people to bring toys for donation and ornaments to decorate. For more information about the event and to see Eleanor’s letter go to cityofasbury.com.
