There was enough festive singing and dancing at the Atlantic Avenue winter holiday party on Tuesday night to shake off two Thanksgiving meals!
The tree lighting near Bond Avenue featured enthusiastic words from Borough President Markowitz, jams from the band Rolie Polie Guacamole, gyrations by dance group DanceWaved, and a performance featuring children from PS 38.
And of course Santa made an appearance, too.
The ceremony was hosted by the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation, a business group.
