(PHOTOS) Boro in Lights brings Rowan students, Glassboro residents together


The holiday season officially started in Glassboro on Friday night at Boro in Lights, the borough’s free annual tree lighting ceremony on Rowan Boulevard.

Thousands of Glassboro residents and Rowan University students enjoyed horse and carriage rides, photos with Santa Claus, an ice sculpture demonstration, food trucks and craft tables. Performances by Rowan’s a cappella group Profecy and Glassboro High School Marching Band welcomed the arrival of Santa and the Grinch on a fire truck at 6:30 p.m. Santa lit the Christmas tree, and a giant menorah was displayed as well.

The ceremony was run by Rowan After Hours and Downtown Glassboro and sponsored by several companies and organizations within the community, including South Jersey Federal Credit Union.
