CLARK — Clark Recreation hosted the Annual Tree & Menorah Lighting Winter Festival on Sunday, Nov. 27. Clark residents were treated to hay rides, horse and buggy rides, train and pony rides, a petting zoo, puppet shows, choir and band concert from the local schools, pretzels, jelly apples, cider donuts, hot chocolate and a picture with the big guy – Santa Claus.
The beautiful weather brought out a record crowd as an estimated 3,500 people were in attendance. A winter land band serenaded all of the people outside to all of their favorite carols while the snow machines produced fresh fallen snow. Mayor Sal Bonaccorso, together with Santa Claus and Recreation Director Ralph Bernardo, counted down at 6 p.m. to light the tree.
