Tree Lighting On December 12

Tree Lighting On December 12

The annual Holiday Lighting ceremony in Rockaway Park is set for
Wednesday, December 12, 2001. The event, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of the Rockaways, The Beach Club, and Keyspan, is set to begin at 5 p.m. on the middle island at the intersection of Rockaway Beach Boulevard and Beach
Boulevard, directly across from Greenpoint Savings Bank.

There will be holiday balloons, goody bags, t-shirts, hats, hot chocolate, and candies for all the kiddies in attendance. There will be plenty of
special holiday treats, and special guests at the ceremony to help bring in the holidays as the Rockaway Park Christmas tree is lit for the first time
this season.

On hand will be the Keyspan Festival Chorus, as well as a visit from Santa Claus. One and all are invited to come down to Beach 116 Street next Wednesday evening and partake in all of the festivities. So, mark your
calendars, and plan to be part of this very special ceremony to kick-off a
joyous holiday season in Rockaway Park.
