The Sparkling Heart of Fordham is still beating this holiday season. Hosted by the Fordham Road Business Improvement District and Infinity Health, the annual Holiday Sparkling Heart of Fordham Celebration and Christmas Tree lighting ceremony was held on Friday, December 11 at Bryan Park to the delight of many local attendees. Jolly Old Saint Nick made a visit to meet with local children and give them presents. The festivities concluded with the traditional symbolic Christmas Tree lighting which made Fordham Road shine bright for the holiday season.
