Tree Lighting

10-December-2018
  On Friday-7-December the Borough of Bogota held their annual Tree Lighting ceremony in front of Borough Hall. This was a block party on Larch Ave were  Families and friends gathered to celebrated the Holidays together. Music was provided, and the Bogota Varsity Cheerleaders passed out cookies and hot chocolate to ward off the cold. Mrs. Claus, and an Elf helper, handed out raffle tickets to the younger attendees , which could win them a prize from Santa.  The Bogota Public had a  number of seasonally books that could be read, or checked out to read at home.
  Then with the blare of lights and the sound of siren the Bogota Volunteer Fire Dept  arrived, from the North, with a special guess riding on the back of the Hook and Ladder truck. The caravan stopped in front of Borough Hall and Santa Clause climbed down to first meet Mrs. Clause, then said hello to all the Children gathered.  He made his way to the reviewing stand and lead the countdown to light the Tree in front of the building.  Then he awarded the prizes to the winners of the raffle. Santa then took some time to meet as many children as he could and listened to what they want for Christmas.
Then Santa wave a big goodbye to everyone wishing them a Happy Holidays.
   On Sunday-16-December Santa Claus,  with help from the Bogota Volunteer Fire Dept, will again travel though Bogota  to see all the good children and pass out lollipops. This will start in the afternoon and he hopes as many Families will come out a wave to him.
