Rain Doesn't Stop Santa From Lighting Christmas Tree in West Nyack

Families crowd West Nyack village green for holiday party.

A light but steady rain could not keep Santa away from West Nyack on Friday night.

With the help of the West Nyack Rotary and the volunteers of the West Nyack Fire Department, Santa lit a Christmas tree and was the host of a community holiday party on the village green on West Nyack Road - just across the street from the West Nyack Post Office.

While Santa was a big hit with the kids, so was Hokey Pokey, a miniature horse from nearby Nickel-O Farms that give Santa a ride to the party.

The event was a collaboration of Rotary, Heritage of West Nyack, West Nyack Elementary and Strawtown Elementary schools and the 4H at Nickel-O Farms.

Hokey Pokey enjoyed his trip through West Nyack, and was so honored to be driving Santa to the Tree Lighting Ceremony. Thank you to all that helped out with handling Hokey and he was very happy to be surrounded by all the children. ~Tracy
