At the Christmas event, carols will be performed by local musical talents. 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, Downtown Staten Island, the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, and the Staten Island Yankees.
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. We invite all Staten Islanders to join us this year at our annual holiday lightings,” said Borough President Oddo.
Both events are open to the public.
