Music, Dance Light Up Heckscher Park

The Stimson Middle School Showstoppers, a dance performance by Dancin’ Feet, and a performance by the John W. Engeman Theater from their “Frosty” production kicked off the town’s Winter Wonderland holiday celebration Thursday night at Heckscher Park. The performances, which went on despite light rain, led up to the arrival of Santa Claus, who handed out surprises to the children who crowded around him after he arrived in a red SUV.

In addition to the performances, the park was lit with 30 light pole displays and 7 large standing lights throughout the park.

“As president of the Huntington Cultural Affairs Institute it warms my heart to carry this year’s Winter Wonderland theme of holiday festivities into December with our first holiday light display inside Heckscher Park, where residents and visitors can visit and take in the beauty of our crown jewel of Town parks, enjoy a special holiday light display throughout the month of December and join in the celebration with holiday music performances on December 13th,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci.
