Westfield Winter Wonderland 2022

Brrr. The weather outside is frightful. But the holidays are so delightful. If you want to celebrate the season with the family, make Westfield Winter Wonderland 2022 your destination of choice.

What: Westfield Winter Wonderland 2022
Where: Foundation Park
When: December 18th, 12 pm to 4 pm

Westfield Winter Wonderland 2022

City officials transform Foundation Park into a Westfield Winter Wonderland on Sunday, December 18th. Let the kids warm up and get that excited energy out at Bouncy House Park. Watch magician Peter Juris perform two separate shows inside Acting Out Studios. And take a photo with Santa at Just a Soul Photography. Lots of fun for the entire family!

Menorah Lighting

The first day of Hanukkah also falls on December 18th this year. To celebrate, Rabbi Block officially lights the first candle of the 2022 menorah. If you want to watch, head over to the North Ave Train Station after you visit Westfield Winter Wonderland. He lights the menorah at 4:30 pm.

Westfield Christmas Trees for Sale

Yes. The Westfield Area Y Men’s Club Christmas Tree Lot is still open for business. Unfortunately, we had to shut down on Tuesday due to rain. But we are back up and running again. We still have a few trees left. However, you need to get here this weekend. I’m not sure how much longer supplies will last. Remember, if you see me, say “hello”.

Toys for Tots Westfield

Finally, the Westfield Police Department accepts new, unwrapped toys for their 2022 Toys for Tots campaign through December 14th. Just drop your donations off in the Toys for Tots bins located inside the police department lobby during normal business hours. Can’t make it to the office? That’s OK. You can also visit their Amazon website and purchase gifts directly from their wishlist. For answers to your questions, please contact Dominick Sandelli at (908) 789-6040. Thank you and happy holidays!

Christmas Tree Lot - Scott Gleason

Westfield Area Y Men’s Club Christmas Tree Lot 2022

For more than 70 years now, the Westfield Area Y Men’s Club has hosted a Christmas Tree Lot for the community. And I am proud to say that I have been personally involved for many, many years now. In fact, the Christmas Tree Lot is our biggest fundraiser for the year. Every single penny raised from the sales gets donated to local charities and other non-profit organizations.

We offer the classic Douglas fir as well as the more fragrant Balsam firs. We even have the Fralsam fir which combines the best characteristics of a Fraser and a Balsam. In addition to trees, the Men’s Club sells beautiful wreaths and tree stands. But if you want to impress your friends and family with one of these beauties this year, you need to come to the Christmas Tree Lot early. We always sell out pretty quickly. See you there!

Volunteers Needed


Our tree shipment arrives from Pennsylvania and Canada on Friday, November 25th. We could really use some help unloading the trailers and setting up the lot so we can open up for business the next day. If you are interested in volunteering your time, please email me.

Westfield United by Light

Just a reminder. Westfield United by Light takes place on Sunday, November 27th. It may be too late to buy the Westfield United Fund’s candle kits. But, you can still show your support. All you need to do is create your own luminarias along your driveway and the sidewalk in front of your Westfield home. And, if you can spare a few dollars, please donate to the WUF online.
