Dan will be leading children in decorating Halloween-inspired creatures and masks to march with in the luminary parade before the pumpkins are illuminated. 




Enjoy Live Jazz Music by the:


The Alex De Lazzari quartet has been making a huge splash recently on the NYC and NJ jazz scene. Comprised of trumpet, bass and drums, the quartet reinvents old standards and takes on new original compositions in order to create a distinct sound while still being steeped in the bebop tradition.

The quartet is so excited to come back to the Morristown Pumpkin Illumination festival for the third year!
