Little Italy Virtual Tree Lighting

Dec 5, 2020

With the announcement of restrictions due to COVID-19, we remain determined to support our businesses and residents while attempting to maintain a sense of normalcy with public health and safety at the forefront.

That being said, our time-honored tradition, the Little Italy Tree Lighting & Christmas Village, had to change in order for us to continue to bring smiles to children, of all ages, faces and to spread holiday spirit like our celebration has done for over two decades.
