Christmas spirit filled the air at Irving Square Park this past weekend. Residents and neighbors gathered on Saturday to embrace the holiday spirit together! Broadway Stages and other neighbors, including a local brass band, the 83rd Precinct, and Fidelis Care, helped organize the event. Councilman Rafael Espinal of District 37 welcomed attendees and thanked sponsors for their contributions.
Local students kicked off the event with a song, and the crowd joined in. Following their performance, a local volunteer orchestra played classic Christmas songs including "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and "Feliz Navidad." After the performances, Santa Claus himself made an appearance! While families and children waited their turns, they enjoyed delicious cookies and beverages.
We hope everyone had a great time at the Irving Square Christmas event and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
