The “Christmas Tree and Menorah Lighting” Ceremony sponsored by the Woodhaven Business Improvement District will be held on Friday, December 4, at 6:30 pm at the Forest Parkway and Jamaica Avenue. There will be the usual assortment of costumed characters and Santa Claus.
The following day, Saturday, December 5, the “Welcome Santa to Woodhaven Parade” will run down Jamaica Avenue.
The Woodhaven Cultural & Historical Society and the Woodhaven Residents' Block Association are marching in this year's parade -- and we are encouraging as many residents as possible to march in the Santa Parade - there's been a lot of sadness in the world of late, lets march together for a happy cause -- Santa! And kids...
Here's the 2013 parade -- let's see if we can't make it just a little longer :-)
Parade marchers should gather at 11:30 am at 96th Street and Jamaica Avenue and will mach down Jamaica Avenue to Dexter Court. This is a child friendly event - Santa Hats will be distributed.
