Don’t Miss The Little North Pole
The spirit of Christmas arrives right on time in the Rockaways. Saturday night, December 3 the annual lighting of the Little North Pole at the Muré family home at Beach 144 Street and Neponsit Avenue will officially kick off the holiday season here in the Rock-aways.
It’s all an attempt to raise some important funds for juvenile diabetes.
The event draws thousands of visitors each year and is considered one of the premier holiday displays in the tristate area.
As in years past, there will be free food and holiday cheer, shows and presentations by local entertainers and, of course, Santa Claus. It all gets underway at 5 p.m. sharp followed by the official lighting at 6 p.m.
The annual event is a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Diabetes Treatment Centers in New York City.
The Little North Pole raised $157,000 last year.
The rain date is scheduled for Sunday, December 4.
