A Saturday snowstorm caused traffic safety troubles all over northern New Jersey and caused Paramus to push their Winter Wonderland and Tree Lighting Ceremony to Sunday.
Despite a layer of snow and ice on the grassy areas, the parking lots were cleared and the winter carnival went off without a hitch. The snowy scenery made it an appropriately titled Winter Wonderland.
According to a paramuspost.com report, several departments, including Shade Tree, Parks Department and DPW, worked well into Sunday morning in order to get things clear.
The Paramus 4th Grade Glee Club performed a concert for guests in attendance and helped count down to the tree lighting.
The event was completely free for Paramus residents thanks to the sponsors below:
- Servpro of Paramus
- The Outlets at Bergen Town Center
- Paramus Sunrise Rotary
- Kaufman, Semeraro & Leibman
- Prestige Motors
- Marrazzo & Platt

"TY to Diane, Dennis, Sue and the other employees and volunteers that worked so hard putting together the Winter Carnival yesterday. And a very special thanks to Connor who helped me light the tree. It was a huge success!"
