The Holidays are a special time of the year when families and friends gather and celebrate the merriment of the season. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, or Kwanzaa, come join us as we celebrate the Holiday Season at the 5th Annual Columbia Waterfront District Tree Lighting Event. The festivities start at 5:00 pm on Friday, December 9th, 2011 at the Human Compass Garden, located at the corner of Sackett and Columbia Streets. This year’s event will feature live Holiday Jazz Music by the Less Magnetic Band and an assortment of free refreshments from local restaurants and businesses. Santa Claus will also spread more cheer by handing out toys to children at the event.
The 5th Annual Columbia Waterfront Tree Lighting Event is jointly sponsored by Carroll Gardens Association, Inc., the Columbia Waterfront District Merchants Association, and local businesses Apple Bank, the Red Hook Star-Revue, and the House of Pizza and Calzone. Carroll Gardens Association, Inc. is conducting a Toy Drive in connection with the event.
