UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the forecast of inclement weather today, we are sorry to say that the Christmas Tree Lighting Event in the park has been canceled.
Mayor Benjamin Weinstock and the Board of trustees invite you to participate in the Parishes of the Five Towns celebration of Christmas in beautiful Andrew J. Parise Park on Sunday, December 11th, at 4:00 PM.
We will gather with family and friends around the traditional bonfire, eat delicious freshly roasted chestnuts and enjoy plenty of hot chocolate and cookies as we wait for our surprise visitor! Carolers from St. Joachim’s Church, St. Joseph’s Church and Our Lady of Good Counsel will lead us in songs of the season that everyone knows and loves. To top off the evening, Mayor Weinstock will continue the exciting tradition of inviting the crowd to count down the dramatic lighting of the splendid Village Christmas tree, as Santa arrives.
For everyone’s comfort we recommend that all who attend dress warmly and bring flashlights to use as needed.
