About The Event
Local businesses from Oyster Bay and East Norwich will set up tables to sample and sell their wares with special holiday discounts. This is the perfect opportunity to find a unique gift or a stocking stuffer. There will also be lots of fun activities like an ice skating rink for kids (or adventurous adults) and carriage rides with with a live horse. John Canning will recite Twas The Night Before Christmas, Girl Scout Troupe 211 will set up fire pits for roasting marshmallows, a local choir will sing holiday carols, and at the end of the night, a special guest will join us: Santa Claus!
