BRONXVILLE, CONN. -- Folks in Bronxville had a jolly old time during the community’s recent "Hometown Holiday" celebrations, the village’s Chamber of Commerce says.

The Chamber and the Bronxville PTA teamed up for the first time to jointly produce the buy-local event.

A tree-lighting featured the Bronxville Middle School Choristers and a holiday greeting from Mayor Mary Marvin. Frosty the Snowman thrilled kids after arriving in a trolley and with a police escort.

Holiday revelers followed a procession to Pondfield Road, where they met Santa at his workshop, which had been mystically transformed from a vacant store into the North Pole.

The workshop continued on Saturday as well.

For grownups, there was the “Holiday Happy Hour” where a dozen stores served liquid refreshments. Individuals and teams of students from Bronxville High School competed in a window-decorating contest. Prizes were donated by the PTA.

Many local businesses also offered discounts to members of the Bronxville PTA.

The Chamber and PTA, thanking the volunteers that made it all possible, mentioned the following folks, businesses, and organizations: Michele MacMillan, of Paws and Play Pet Resort; Bob Krause, of Mrs. Morgan’s Flower Shop; Tammi Kane, and Michael Palmieri; Admiral Real Estate Services; Merit Auto Body; Samson Management; Admiral Real Estate Services; Pam Simpson and the Choristers; the Village of Bronxville; Bronxville police; Bronxville DPW’ the Village of Tuckahoe; Andy McMillan; George McKinnis; Joe Donaldson; Nadine El-Tanamly; Concordia Conservatory carolers; and the Bronxville High School Life Skills students and teachers.

Perks were donated by: Kaito Sushi, Haagen-Dazs, Candy Rox, Coals, One on 1 Lacrosse, and Lange’s.

The loans of needed props came from: Mrs. Morgan’s Flower Shop, Bow Tie Cinemas, Value Drugs, and The Flower Shop of Tryforos and Pernice Florist.
