It’s that time of the year again!! We hope that everyone has had a magnificent, fun and sun-filled summer. We have already been making tons of changes to the display, making it bigger, brighter and better than ever before for the 2019 Christmas Season.
I’d like to thank everyone for your help in past years. You all have truly gone above and beyond in the past and I hope that you can help us out again. As you know, the Food Bank of Central New York is such an important and vital resource for our community, not only during the Holiday Season, but also during the entire year. I hope you’ll be able to stop by this year and help us to help them. 100% of EVERYTHING we get, whether monetary or non-perishable items goes directly to the Food Bank.
We will have our annual “Sneek Peek” on Halloween night Thursday October 31 this year. We won’t be fully operational at that point but we’ll be close, and that serves as kind of a test of what we have up and gives the neighborhood a taste of what’s to come later on. Candy and fun for all!! We’ll start going at about 5 PM, and shut it down a little bit after the last ghosts and goblins come around.
Our big OPENING NIGHT will be Friday, November 29, Black Friday. Shows will be at 6, 7 and 8 PM that night, and Saturday also. Shows on Sundays will be at 6 and 7 PM again this season. We were lucky last year in that while it did snow on some show nights, it wasn’t really wet as in past years and we didn’t have to cancel any shows. But as we all know, the weather in December can be unpredictable, so we may have to have some dark nights for safety purposes. All of that info will be published on our website and social media accounts. There will have to be a couple of scheduled dark nights (boooooo!) and we’ll publish those here and in our social media feeds in a couple of days.
This of course is all a big run up to our Christmas Eve Extravaganza, to happen on Tuesday, December 24, at 7:00 PM. Of course, there will be fun and candy for everyone, and Santa himself will make an appearance to say hello and “Merry Christmas” to everyone. Also, stay tuned for our always popular Theme Nights, and we’ll post more info as the time grows closer. (TSO fans… go buy a new lighter)
Finally, we thank you all for your help of our cause in the past, and I hope that you’ll be able to help us to get the word out this year. Thank you again. We can’t do it without your help.
