Newark Downtown District and the New Jersey Devils will host the 2018 Downtown Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration at the Prudential Center Championship Plaza on Saturday, December 1st.
The annual event will include an assortment of family-friendly activities, including carnival games, holiday carolers, a bouncy house, kiddie train rides, NJ Devils floor hockey, and a special concert performance by The Voice semi-finalist, Ali Caldwell.
We hear that a certain North Pole representative will also be in attendance, offering free selfies with area children. Rumor has it, special visits will also include Black Panther, Captain America, The Incredibles and members of Paw Patrol.
