In keeping with tradition, Westchester Square became a Winter Wonderland last week to welcome the upcoming holiday season. The Westchester Square Business Improvement District and Councilman James Vacca hosted their 3rd Annual Westchester Square Holiday Celebration on Friday, December 4 at Owen Dolen Park which featured a Christmas tree lighting ceremony and a surprise visit by Santa Claus and his two reindeers, Spanky and Skeeter. Jolly Old Saint Nick was on site to distribute toys to all of the good boys and girls. Adding to the merriment were the Yuletide Carolers who gave a rousing performance of classic Christmas carols as eager guests sang together well into the night.
