There are lots of fun ways to celebrate the season in New Rochelle.

Tomorrow, December 2, the Chamber of Commerce hosts its annual interfaith Holiday Lighting at 5:30pm on Memorial Plaza.

The next day — December 3 — we launch a new tradition with the opening of the Holiday Market at the New Rochelle Transit Center. Visit for a full list of vendors and scheduled entertainment.  The market will run through December 12.

In addition, youngsters can visit with Santa throughout the month — in front of  City Hall on December 8, at Lincoln Park on December 9, and at various parks on December 18. For more information visit

And if you’re looking for opportunities to give back or would like to be added to our donation and drive page, visit

Finally, the City is offering two hours of free holiday parking in certain municipal lots throughout December, as well as two hours of free parking on the rooftop deck of the New Rochelle Transit Center garage for shoppers at the Holiday Market, effective during market hours only.

Have a great December!
