“8th Annual Community Holiday Tree Lighting Pop-Up Celebration!”
 
The Central Astoria Local Development Coalition and NYC Council Member
Costa Constantinides proudly hosted a socially distanced 8th Annual Community Holiday Tree Lighting Pop-Up Celebration on Sunday, December 6th from 4-5 p.m. at the beautiful
Astoria Park Great Lawn.  
This beloved annual event has become a tradition that everyone in the Astoria community looks forward to year after year, and this year was no exception albeit the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
               
This festive event included a photo op with jolly Santa Claus, his very animated elf and two peppy wooden soldiers - all on stilts.  Attendees also enjoyed a special pop-up holiday performance by the NYC Brass Entourage featuring delightful sounds of the season leading up to the grand finale of the highly anticipated tree lighting at 5 pm led by Central Astoria LDC’s President, George L. Stamatiades, and Executive Vice President, Tony Barsamian. 
In attendance were NYC Council Member Costa Constantinides and Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, expressing well wishes for the holiday season.
               
Marie Torniali, Executive Director of the Central Astoria LDC, said “We thank Council Member Constantinides for continuing to support this wonderful free event that has become Astoria’s holiday tradition and while this was a scaled down celebration, it symbolized the unity and fellowship that exists in this amazing community in which we live
and is more important than ever.” 
               
This program was supported, in part, by public funds from
the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and
NYC Council Member Costa Constantinides.
