Islandia Village held its third annual tree lighting ceremony today at Village Hall. Children visited the mini-Village Hall, and received candy canes from Mrs. Claus. As people enjoyed coffee and hot chocolate, DJ and village resident Rob Gerardi entertained the crowd with a number of festive Christmas songs. The event was capped off with a lucky little boy helping Mayor Allan M. Dorman to hit the switch and light up the tree. Santa Claus later arrived, riding on top of a fire engine from the Central Islip Fire Department. Children lined up to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas, and how they have been good this year.
