Holiday Tree Lighting brings Cheer During Chilly Evening

On Saturday night the Friends of St. Nicholas Park hosted their annual Holiday Festival and Tree Lighting. Below is a link to some of the photos of the event. By the time our entertainment and activities ended, we had a brilliantly lit tree and very little cider or hot chocolate left.

We want to call out a few individuals who helped make our event happen.

Special thanks to:

Risa Rottenberg who organized this year's event.

Michael Jones, who played Santa Claus.

Our Arts and Crafts staff, Laurel Peacock and Susan Mende.

Waldron Rick who entertained us with his brilliant trumpet playing.

The Dorothy Maynor Singers, and Byron McCray at Harlem School for the Arts.

The members of the Friends of St. Nicholas Park who volunteered and helped make this event possible including Julia, Carola, Josh, Adrien and William.
