Beloved characters from Disney’s Frozen, Elsa and Anna, will be at the Cocoa Crawl for photo opportunities, and entertainment will be ongoing in the Town Center Plaza at the corner of Main and Prospect Streets throughout the afternoon.

A Community Tree will also be featured in the Town Center Plaza. Families may bring an ornament from home* or make one during the event with the Roselle Lions Club at the American Legion Hall, 344 E. Maple Ave., to put on the Community Tree. The Community Tree will be decorated with ornaments from the community and lit at the conclusion of the Cocoa Crawl. (*If you bring ornaments from home, please know that all ornaments placed on the Roselle Community Tree will be considered donations. Ornaments will not be returned to participants.)
