It’s a special time of year for these neighboring Hudson County towns. That’s when Christmas comes early and transports everyone to a magical place with floats, marching bands, musical groups and Santa spreading holiday cheer.
“Great turnout, haven’t seen this since 1967, the DeFino era – when I arrived from Cuba,” says Mayor Felix Roque.
“If this is an indication of what the next three years bring for our administration I think that it’s going to be a tremendous gift,” says Commissioner Susan Colacurcio.
“It’s a great way to kick off the holiday season and the kids are having a good time and that’s all that counts,” says Commissioner Gabriel Rodriguez.
“I’m very happy to be here tonight and even happier to see so many of our students come out,” says West New York Superintendent of Schools, Clara Brito Herrera.
And over in Union City, the festivities continued and the love for the community.
“We have Christmas decoration too,” says Alicia Morejon, director of parks and recreation. “It’s all over the city; you know, it’s something beautiful.
I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.”
“I wish everyone a happy and Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year,” says Commissioner Celin Valdivia.
