Christmas Traditions In Bordentown City, NJ

Christmas in Bordentown starts early and with the help of countless volunteers and local businesses. This past year the tree was generously donated by the Chesterfield Christmas Tree Farm and to date this was the largest tree we have ever had!

I got a tip about when and where the tree was going to be cut down so I headed over and met some of our great Bordentown City workers as they cut down the tree and brought it to our town to get ready for our annual tree lighting.

Then came the task of getting the tree up, and decorating it!
Cindy Ridolfino-Grainger owner of the Square Peg Round Hole Art and Recovery Emporium and Santiago Aristides owner of Under The Moon Cafe, both located on Farnsworth Ave. in Bordentown City, decorated the tree.

Admission is free and will be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday in December from 3-8PM.Here you see a Candyland display owned by Mikki Quinn.
