At the Christmas event, carols will be performed by local musical talents, including Vinnie Medugno, Al Lambert, and Gabriella Garber. The Salvation Army Choir will also perform. Santa will join Borough President Oddo to light the Christmas tree and give out books to children who attend. The event is sponsored by Allstate, the Gavel Grill, the National Lighthouse Museum, and the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce.
The Menorah Lighting ceremony will feature musical performances from various community groups. The event, which celebrates the Festival of Lights, is sponsored by the Council of Jewish Organizations of Staten Island.
“The holidays are a time for all of us to come together and celebrate the spirit of the season,” noted BP Oddo. “We invite all Staten Islanders to join us as at Borough Hall as we celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah.”
Both events are open to the public.
