MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- The Three Kings and Santa Claus will visit Mount Vernon on Monday, Dec. 15 for the annual lighting of the 20-foot holiday tree at 6 p.m at City Hall.
The Three Kings have been a popular addition to the tree lighting for the past three years. They represent the journey from distant lands to Bethlehem while bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh upon the birth of baby Jesus. They are popular among residents of Latin American countries.
The celebration will include a toy giveaway with volunteers from the city’s Youth Bureau acting as elves. Entertainment will be provided by the All City Band, the Mayor’s Interfaith Choir, Transcend Dance Group, Young at Arts and students of the music school at the Doles Center.
All are welcome to attend.
