The Ossining Tree Lighting Ceremony is one of my favorite Ossining Annual Celebrations. There is music, hot cocoa and cider, treats, and caroling with friends and neighbors. Santa arrives in a fire truck, making it super special for the little ones.
According to the Village of Ossining and the Ossining Recreation and Parks Department the Christmas tree lighting tradition has been going on since the early 1950’s, when they would bring a new tree to the center of Main Street and gather to light it as a community and family.
The Village of Ossining decided that for 2020, the event would be virtual. Here you can see the video from this years celebration:
I couldn’t help but look back at last year’s photos! The 2019 Tree Lighting Ceremony was a fun event, and we really hope to enjoy it again in 2021!
