The Annual Atlantic Avenue Holiday Tree Lighting Party on Thursday, December 2nd was a very festive occasion with over 200 people of all ages joining in the activities sponsored by the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corp., Marathon Bank and Con Ed.
After a jubilant and rosy appearance by Santa, New York City Councilmember Stephen Levin was joined by New York State Senator Daniel Squadron and Assemblywomen Joan Millman in lighting a 14′ tree and a menorah. The audience was enthralled by the singing of P.S. 261, the exuberant dancing by members of the Brooklyn Ballet and music by the children’s group Rolie Polie Guacamole.
Delicious treats were provided by Atlantic Avenue merchants.
