Residents in Cranford got into the holiday spirit with their annual community house lighting tradition.
Cranford neighbors on John Street spent the past few days decorating their houses, but have waited until Saturday night to actually light them up.
They gathered in front of their houses and waited for Santa to drive down the street along with a car parade and give them all signal to light their decorated houses all at once.
An organizer of the event told News 12 the community has done this tradition for 10 years. He says it's an event that can be safely continued this year even with the pandemic since it is all outdoors.
