Purpose

The Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation (AALDC) will host the Annual Atlantic Avenue Tree Lighting Ceremony.


The annual tree lighting ceremony, sponsored by Marathon Bank, is a popular holiday event bringing people together from the neighborhoods of Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Downtown Brooklyn and Boerum Hill along and around the stretch of Atlantic Avenue running from Hicks Street to Fourth Avenue. The Tree Lighting Ceremony is free and open to the public with complimentary holiday treats provided by local Atlantic Avenue restaurants and shops.

Atlantic Avenue's annual tree lighting ceremony and activities will feature performances by children from PS 38 and 261 who will lead guests with carols and performances.  The children's musical group, Rolie Polie Guacamole, will be a delightful addition.  Santa Claus will also make a guest appearance to participate in the festivities, greet children and receive their Dear Santa letters. Toys will also be collected for Shop Brooklyn's Toy Drive, so bring a toy to donate!  In keeping with tradition, Council Member David Yassky will again join the festivities to officiate the tree lighting.
