Santa arrived by firetruck to join Borough President Oddo to light the Christmas tree. He then met with children who attended and gave out books.
“The holidays are a time for all of us to come together and celebrate the spirit of the season,” noted BP Oddo, who brought his puppy Jocko along for the festivities. “I wish you all a safe and merry Christmas.”
The event was sponsored by Allstate, the Gavel Grill, Killmeyer’s Old Bavaria Inn, the National Lighthouse Museum, and the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce.
