Holiday Festival & Tree Lighting in Astoria Park

On Saturday December 2nd, please join Central Astoria LDC for their 5th Annual Holiday Festival & Tree Lighting Celebration on the Great Lawn in Astoria Park from 2 to 5 pm. Join friends and neighbors for entertainment by the New York Holiday Choristers, Dave Cremins Out of This World Magic, and Holiday Beat.

There will be free popcorn (while supplies last) and Holiday Train Rides from 2 to 4.30 pm (you must be on the line by 4 pm). And the grand finale, the tree lighting, is at 5 pm!

The Holiday Festival is sponsored in part by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, District 22 Council Member Costa Constantinides, and the generosity of corporate sponsor Thomas M. Quinn & Sons.
