The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation is pleased to announce that the Annual Holiday Tree Lighting at Belmont Lake State Park will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2022 from 4:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Everyone is welcome to join us in this magical celebration of the holiday season.
Prior to the lighting of the tree by Santa Claus, traditional holiday music will be sung by the choruses of North Babylon School District on the front lawn of the Long Island State Park Headquarters at Belmont Lake State Park. After Santa and his helpers light the tree, there will be a spectacular firework display over Belmont Lake. Activities begin at 4:00pm and include an ice sculpting demonstration, numerous holiday displays, a magic show, and a juggler. There will be food and merchandise available for purchase. All activities are outside so please dress accordingly.
Admission is free. In the spirit of giving, we will be collecting non-perishable food donations for those in need in our community. Any donations are welcome and appreciated.
This event is sponsored by New York State Parks- Long Island Region, the Natural Heritage Trust, Cox Media Group (WBAB 102.3FM and WBLI 106.1 FM Radio Stations), and New York Life.
