(November 21, 2022) —Central Business Bureau Chairwoman Pamela Steele and Event Chairman Al Santostefano of the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce invite the community to experience the Annual Magic of Middletown presented by Holiday on Main Street! This magical series of events will be held on the weekends from Thanksgiving to Christmas. These safe, fun and interactive events are sure to get the community excited and downtown to feel the holiday spirit.
The Magic of Middletown will begin with a tree lighting on Friday, November 25, 2022 on the South Green and outside of the Middlesex Chamber, and will continue on the following Saturdays: November 26, December 3 and December 10. These events will feature our “Tis the Season to Find a Gnome” scavenger hunt at different locations throughout downtown, a holiday vendor fair, reindeer games, movie and craft events, pictures with Santa, horse and wagon rides, holiday music, and much more. The Chamber will also host the annual Dashing through Downtown Decorated Vehicle Parade on the evening of Saturday, December 10, which will feature a decorated car parade that will travel around downtown Middletown to showcase our beautiful Main Street and the surrounding areas.
Please Note: We are closely monitoring the potential for heavy rain and wind on Friday, November 25th. Should the possibility of inclement weather continue, the tree lighting will be re-scheduled for Saturday, November 26th from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m.
