Celebrate Rudolph on Sunday

It’s amazing how much of America’s cultural iconography is connected in ways big and small to New Rochelle.  Just visit the Walk of Fame at Library Green to get a taste of the luminaries who have called our city home.  And this Sunday from 3:00pm to 5:00pm (ceremony at 4:00pm), we induct a new addition: Robert May, the creator of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

For Sunday’s celebration, Ruby Dee Park will be transformed into a winter wonderland with Rudolph characters, music and dancing, arts and crafts, make-a-gift, face-painting, and a gingerbread bounce house. Participants are invited to dress as a reindeer — free antlers and red noses will be provided.  Not owning a reindeer outfit myself, I will probably wear my usual suit and tie, but I’ll consider donning some antlers.

Our popular Holiday Market returns from December 2 through December 11 at the New Rochelle Train Station.  Weekdays from 4:00pm to 8:00pm and weekends from Noon to 8:00pm, come celebrate the season with crafts, vendors, performances, even an ice-skating rink.  A beautiful and festive transformation of our transit hub.

Giving Thanks at the Doyle Center

A pleasure to join colleagues from City Hall at the Hugh Doyle Senior Center, where we teamed up this week to serve a special Thanksgiving lunch.  Enjoy the holiday!

Holiday Lights in New Ro

Our new holiday lights at Library Green and at City Hall are really beautiful.  A festive start to the season, and definitely worth a visit after sundown.

Dia De Muertos

One of us knew how to dress for the occasion

Library Green was hopping today for New Rochelle’s celebration of Dia De Muertos.  Great performances, great crowd — not to mention some amazing costumes!
