Acclaimed singer shares Christmas favorites

Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino in downtown Niagara Falls welcomed the holiday season Wednesday night. A free event was held on Seneca Square Bridge, and featured Santa and Mrs. Claus, Buffalo sports mascots and Seneca Gaming Corp. leaders. A large crowd was welcomed and invited to watch as the Christmas tree was lit.

Cookies and cocoa were served to children and families as they sang carols, took pictures, and braved the cold weather.

Award-winning singer, actor and adopted Western New Yorker Vanessa Williams made a special appearance, entertaining with a trio of songs for the audience. The performer was the headline act later that evening inside the Bear’s Den Showroom.
