December 12, 2019 at 7:06 a.m.
More than 300 people gather on Saturday, Dec. 7, to watch the second annual Christmas tree lighting at the corner of Forest and Rye Beach avenues in Rye Town Park. Onlookers had the opportunity to meet Santa Claus and enjoy hot cocoa with friends and family.
Children eagerly run to the Rye Town Park corner for a chance to meet Santa Claus, played by Armonk resident Jeff Fernandes, and give him high fives.
City of Rye firefighter, Port Chester resident and Santa Claus helper Max Billington hands out candy canes to children before the tree lighting.
Rye resident Jasmine Kamath, 4, eats a candy cane as she watches carolers sing holiday classics during the annual Christmas Tree Lighting.
