The beloved annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is back! To kick off the season, the neighborhood will welcome the public to Ciccarone Park at the intersection of East 188th Street and Arthur Avenue. Attendees can get into the holiday spirit by meeting Santa and an elf, singing along to holiday caroling, and enjoying Italian cookies and hot chocolate from local small businesses. In addition, The BID will partner with The Children’s Cancer Society of America, to offer a toy giveaway for children on a first come, first served basis.
