'Tis the Season: Tree Lighting Season Arrives
If it's the holiday season, it's tree lighting season in Brooklyn. Here are a couple of local events coming up (and we'll fill in more as we get emails or see them listed). The Annual Atlantic Avenue Tree Lighting Ceremony is taking place on Thursday (11/29) at 6PM. It will be officiated by Council Member David Yassky and include Christmas caroling and dance performances by PS 38 and PS 261, holiday treats compliments of local restaurants and Santa. The event is sponsored by the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation and Atlantic Avenue Betterment Association. The tree is at the Belarusian Church at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Bond Street in Boerum Hill. Meanwhile, in Carroll Gardens, the Transit Garden's Annual Tree Lighting will take place on December 5 at Smith Street and Second Place. Guests are invited to bring ornaments to hang on the street. PS 58's Chamber Strings will be performing Holiday songs at 4:30 and there will be hot cocoa, donuts and holiday cookies.
