Livingston Holiday Tradition Benefits The Burn Center of New Jersey


The Camuso (pronounced Ca-moo-so) Holiday Light Display is free and open to the public from now through after the New Year and is run by the Livingston Camuso Committee in memory of Livingston resident Ernie Camuso, who passed away in 2010. This display benefits The Burn Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, New Jersey's only certified burn center.

The display is the work of former Livingston resident, Ernie Camuso of Burnet Hill Road. Mr. Camuso’s elaborate Christmas display was legendary in Livingston, NJ dating back to the 1960’s. Tens of thousands of colorful lights coupled with animated characters attracted thousands and thousands of people each year to view his beautiful display. Mr. Camuso was a toymaker, and later machinist, by trade who embraced the holiday season and bringing cheer to the community.

After his passing, his family donated the display so that the tradition could remain. The Livingston Camuso Committee was formed to restore many of the display pieces and to continue the display. Community members work tirelessly to ensure the display remains a vibrant part of the community substantially adding to the collection each year.
