Hundreds of local residents hit Downtown New Providence for the 40th annual Christmas Walk on Friday, Nov. 23.
Children of all all ages were anticipating Santa's arrival on the roof top of The Provident Bank building at 6 p.m. The crowd cheered as Santa appeared out of the dark skies. Santa was escorted down with the help of the New Providence Fire Department.
The New Providence High School Marching Band, which recently took home first place awards at state and national championships, provided holiday music as the crowd waited for Santa.
The Presbyterian Church at New Providence started off the festivities with a nativity scene and live animals. They offered refreshments to all of their guests.
Sponsors of this walk were the New Providence Downtown Improvement District, the New Providence Fire Department, and the New Providence High School Band.
Happy Holidays to all.
