Sat, Dec 2nd 2017 10:15 am
The Town of Niagara held its first "Noel at Niagara" park lighting ceremony on Friday, Nov. 24, at Veterans Memorial Community Park, Lockport Road. "We are very excited to launch our first "Noel at Niagara" event at Veteran's Memorial Community Park," said Town Supervisor Lee Wallace.
"We purchased the light displays two years ago, but needed to wait until the electrical work was finished in the park this past spring to set up the displays. This will become a holiday destination for our residents and neighboring communities for years to come," added Wallace.
The ceremony included a visit from Santa Claus, a fireworks display, the Bob Volkman Band and the Colonial Village fifth-grade chorus.
The light displays will be illuminated each night from 5-9 p.m. until Sunday, Jan. 7. Children and families can also come visit the North Pole workshop at the Calvin K. Richards Senior/Youth Activity Center inside the park. Children can see Santa Claus and enjoy the other holiday activities from 6-8:30 p.m. on Saturdays, Dec. 2, 9 and 16.
