Though this year’s Merrick Fall Festival sponsored by the Merrick Chamber of Commerce was scaled down, there were bands, booths and fun food to enjoy. And children could, and did, spend hours on the rides if they were lucky enough to have an all day pass.
The North Merrick Fire Department escorted Santa in his sleigh throughout our community the night of December 19. It’s a tradition our family looks forward to each year, and the snow lined streets made it particularly festive.
After Santa and his firefighter helpers visited our street, I drove across town to the Community Holiday Tree and Lumiere Walk.
