Please join us for Light the ‘Dale, the annual holiday and tree lighting event in Boniface Circle in Scarsdale Village, on Friday, November 30, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm. This year’s event promises to be even bigger and better than last year’s. We’ll have more singers, more food, and more lights! Plus all the old favorites, like Santa arriving in style on the fire truck, and hot chocolate courtesy of Lange’s.
The event will once again entertain and delight the entire family. Come listen to and sing along with the Hoff Barthelson Holiday Carolers and SHS a capella group For Good Measure, as they perform holiday favorites. Santa will visit until 7:00 pm, so children will have plenty of time to share their gift list with him. Children will also have the opportunity to create a holiday craft. This year Sew Happy will offer children the chance to make a snowman themed finger puppet.
And like last year, parents can submit their kids’ names for the opportunity to light the tree and menorah. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your child’s name, school and age. At 5:30 pm, Mayor Dan Hochvert will pick one lucky winner to flip the switch! Give your kids a chance to create a magical moment! With the Village’s purchase of even more new lights, the tree promises to look magnificent. And, again, Westchester Reform Temple will share its glorious menorah with us.
And what’s a party without some delicious food? Mediterranean Mexican, Short Rib Chili, Chicken Soup, Hamburgers and Hot Dogs will all be available for purchase thanks to Scarsdale’s own Popojito.
Be sure to bring your neighbors and friends to this festive kick-off to the holidays. ”Last year’s attendance exceeded our expectations and we can’t wait to bring our community back together again in celebration. It was pure joy and made us feel exceptionally lucky to live and work in Scarsdale,” said Jane Veron, Scarsdale Village Trustee, Liaison to the Scarsdale Business Alliance, and CEO of The Acceleration Project.
