Annual Glen Cove BID Holiday Festival: Saturday, December 1

The Glen Cove Downtown BID kicks off the holiday season with its annual Holiday Festival, followed by the City of Glen Cove's Tree Lighting. Festivities will begin at 1pm when Santa arrives by horse and carriage. Horse and carriage rides will be given around Downtown Glen Cove for all to enjoy from 1 to 3:45pm. Santa will then sit to hear each child's  Christmas list and take free photos, one per family. Plenty of hot cocoa and coffee will be provided to warm you up while everyone will satisfy their sweet tooth with a candy cane. The Glen Cove High School Select Chorale, under the direction of Ed Norris, will sing some holiday themed songs. Stay to listen to the holiday sounds of the Glen Cove High School Jazz Band, directed by Britney Frank Rifkind. Excerpts from "A Christmas Carol" will be performed by the Slayer Players Theatre Company, followed by the Christmas carols of recording artist Frank Rendo. Ceremonial candles will be given out as Mayor Tenke speaks and the lights of Glen Cove's Grand Christmas tree go on to start the Glen Cove Holiday spirit.
All festivities are free of charge, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors: American Paving and Masonry, The Regency of Glen Cove, Gill Associates Photography, One and Only Dental, Glen Cove Mansion and Subaru.
