Winter Fest on Main


BAY SHORE—Excitement mounted at Dr. King Park last Saturday evening as the annual Winter Fest event got underway. The tree- and menorah-lighting ceremony drew area residents to the park for the joyous kickoff to the holiday season that’s hosted by the Bay Shore Beautification Society.

The refreshments flowed from a table set up to serve hot cocoa, mulled cider and Entenmann’s holiday cookies to the crowd. Volunteers from the Bay Shore High School Interact Club manned the tables and helped with both setting up and clearing the venue. 

Local school groups and YMCA dancers provided entertainment under the Band Shell. The cast of “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” which is now playing at the Boulton Center for the Performing Arts, stopped by to belt out a few of the songs in the show.

However, the highlight of the event was the sound of fire engine sirens, signaling the arrival of the guests of honor: Frosty the Snowman and Santa Claus, who were on hand to greet the youngest in the audience.
