By Charlotte Haims, Member, The Reformed Church of Bronxville


Dec. 12, 2018:  The 104th annual Bronxville Christmas Pageant takes place at 5:30 pm on Christmas Eve. As always, the pageant will feature a reenactment of the nativity scene with participants from the community and live animals.

There will be readings by the Bronxville clergy from seven local churches. Carols will be led by Dale Walker, accompanied by the brass players of the Bronxville Pops Concert Band. This is Dale Walker’s silver anniversary leading the village in singing carols.  

In addition, there will be the ringing of the tower bells and singing by an “Invisible Choir.” Anyone can participate in the Invisible Choir; just arrive 15 minutes early at 5:15 pm for a brief practice. 

The pageant is dependent entirely on donations from the community.
