Fri Dec 6 — Today’s predicted showers are moving Nyack’s Friday’s previously scheduled tree lighting to Saturday afternoon. The Nyack Chamber of Commerce will host its annual “Holiday Lights of Nyack” celebration on Saturday, December 7 from 5:30-7p at the Veterans Park Gazebo on Main and Cedar Streets in the center of Nyack.
Holiday tunes will set the mood for the festivities, which will feature a live performance of holiday carols by the Lower Hudson Valley Youth Chorus under the direction of Jared Rosenblum. Additional family entertainment will be offered by Jeffrey Friedberg and the Bossy Frog Band.
Free hot chocolate will be served by Nyack’s chocolate emporium Chocolaterie, along with free hot cider provided by Mostly Myrtle’s, a prominent vendor at the Nyack Farmers’ Market (a weekly Chamber event).
Adding to the fun and excitement, Nyack actor and JohnnyCakes host Dave Blau will perform a reading of the classic “The Night Before Christmas,” and Santa will make a special appearance aboard the Highland Hose Company’s antique fire truck.
The village’s tree is courtesy of The Pour House pub and Walgreen’s supplied its lights and decorations.
