PARSIPPANY — Santa Claus arrived in Parsippany on Saturday, December 1 on a firetruck from Parsippany-Troy Hills Volunteer Fire Department District 6.  Children were waiting outside town hall drinking hot chocolate and eating cookies supplied by ShopRite.

They were also listening to Christmas Caroling by Parsippany High School and Parsippany Hills High School Choir. Inside Town Hall, children had the opportunity to tell Santa Claus what they wanted for Christmas while parents took pictures of their children.

Children also received candy canes, stockings and other games. They were able to color and have fun in the Council Chambers with Santa Helpers.
