The holiday spirit is alive in Springfield Gardens.
The Christmas tree in Springfield Park lit up for the season on Wednesday, December 11 with residents and community leaders watching.
“This is a great event for the whole family,” said Councilmember Donovan Richards, who hosted the tree lighting along with the Parks Department, Friends of Brookville Park, Storm Rydaz and the Student’s Real Friends Network.
Holiday music played as children took photos with Santa and shared in the community Christmas celebration.
Holiday trees throughout the southeast community are lighting up. The Brookville Park tree was lit on Saturday, December 7.
