The street was filled with families who were excited to see not only the Lindenhurst Fire Department parade floats but also “jolly old Santa Nick.”

Mayor Tom Brenna gave a “merry” welcome speech to all the residents in attendance.

The tree lighting ceremony is just one of many traditions held in Lindenhurst throughout the year.
