I am delighted to have participated in the official opening of the Lights and Ice event including the Light Up the Village Green festivities on Sunday evening.
Hearty kudos to the Great Neck Parks District for creating an amazing experience right here in the heart of the village, which was a huge hit. The vibrancy at the event, complete with waffles, and hot chocolate kiosks, which was much akin to Rockefeller Center at this time of year, was palpable.
I applaud the Great Neck Parks District for injecting life into the community. It is my hope that in the coming weeks, the Lights and Ice event will welcome food delivery from neighborhood restaurants to the cozy igloos and warm firepits seating areas that it showcased at the official opening on Sunday, Dec. 8.
