HO!” enthusiasm, as well as special gifts for all the children who came out to have their pictures taken with him. The children delighted in telling Santa what they want for Christmas.

The four-hour event drew a great and very excited crowd to Steinway Street, as they took advantage of the photo-op with Santa, kicking off the holiday sea- son and creating memories that warm even the coldest of days. The children were also excited and extremely eager to have their faces painted, enjoy balloon artistry and candy canes, and dance and sing along with holiday music by Songful Artists. The event brought smiles to children and parents alike, and a feeling of magic during The Most Wonderful Time of The Year!

This free event was sponsored by Council Member Costa Constantinides through the Neighborhood Development Grant Initiative.
