In an effort to give everyone some Christmas cheer this year during the Moonlight Magic night on December 4th, we have decided to do the Firetruck Christmas Parade around the village so families do not have to leave their homes to see Santa and the firetrucks if they choose to. We encourage people to come out and stand by the curb to view Santa, but maintain social distancing with your neighbors. We are also driving by East Side Rehabilitation Center as well as the Cloisters so those residents can view the parade as well. We will be leaving the Ag Center at 7:30pm and heading down to Brooklyn street over to Liberty Street. We will be arriving with Santa around 7:50-8pm at the Monument for the annual lighting of the monument. We hope everyone enjoys this experience from the comforts of their own homes and possibly starting a new tradition during these difficult times.
