The Washington Square Association’s annual tradition continues!

On Wednesday, December 5 at 6:00 p.m., the Rob Susman Brass Quartet, children, and grown-ups will sing holiday songs. The sparkling lights on the resplendent tree will be turned on to mark the beginning of festive winter evenings. Santa Claus himself has promised to appear, candy canes in hand, and lead the children in the illumination countdown. The Washington Square Association provides songbooks.
