On Tuesday, December 3, 2013 from 6:00–8:00 p.m., the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation (AALDC) will once again host its Annual Atlantic Avenue Tree Lighting Ceremony and festivities at the Belarusian Church, at 401 Atlantic Avenue, corner of Bond Street. It’s free and open to the public. In addition, merchants from the waterfront to Fourth Avenue are encouraged to play their favorite holiday tunes and to include the theme in their holiday window designs.
Complimentary holiday treats and refreshments will be provided by local Atlantic Avenue restaurants and shops: The Moxie Spot, Sahadi’s, Betty Bakery, Pete’s Waterfront Ale House, Key Food and Moon Organic Café.
Councilmember Stephen Levin, whose office is located on Atlantic Avenue, will officiate the tree lighting at 6:00 pm. Other local representatives and special guests will also be present including the judges of the annual holiday window design competition who will announce this year’s winners. Santa Claus will make a guest appearance to participate in the festivities, greet children and receive their Dear Santa letters.
