Festive Weekend in Bronxville with Tree Lighting, Caroling, Santa, Frosty, and More PDF Print Email


By Nicole Tuck, Director, Bronxville Chamber of Commerce

Dec. 12, 2018: Bronxville’s annual "Light the Night" tree lighting was Friday night, kicking off a weekend of festive events in Bronxville. Alex Lampert of Jimmy Dee Entertainment MC’d the event, keeping the crowd entertained with contests and giveaways from Ladle of Love.

Bronxville’s Mayor Marvin, Eastchester Town Supervisor Anthony Colavita, and president of NewYork- Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital Michael Fosina all wished the crowd a joyous holiday season. The Bronxville Middle School Choir, led by Pamela Simpson, sang carols. Frosty and Santa had a police escort down Pondfield Road and arrived at Leonard Morange Park to light the tree. They rode in a Mercedes convertible with a big bow on it, thanks to event sponsor Pepe Automotive Group. Ladle of Love provided the much-needed warmth of their soups, along with cookies, hot cocoa, and hot cider. Jimmy Dee entertainment transformed the park into a festive party of lights.

On Saturday, Elsa, Anna, and Olaf of the Disney movie Frozen strolled the village. After getting makeovers at Maison Rouge, they stopped by shops and restaurants. After visiting merchants, they were off to spread holiday cheer to the pediatric patients at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital. The kids and hospital staff were so excited to have these visitors that they broke out into song more than once.

J.McLaughin hosted a “sip-n-shop” to benefit the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce on Saturday. Dobbs & Bishop enjoyed Young at Arts carolers throughout the afternoon, and Concordia Conservatory caroled the streets of Bronxville Saturday evening. The weekend wrapped up with Snowflake the Elf taking photos at Found Herbal on Sunday.


The sponsors who brought you this festive weekend were NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, Pepe Automotive Group, Ladle of Love, Bronxville Auto Collision, Coals Pizza, and EMLJ on behalf of their tenants. The events committee members were Michele MacMillan (Paws and Play Pet Resort), Bob Kraus (Mrs. Morgan’s Flower Shop), Jennifer Lampert (Ladle of Love), and Jessica Mullins (Found Herbal Apothecary). Finally, our Frosty and Santa (Celebrity Teachers from The Bronxville School) and Frozen characters (Michele MacMillan’s daughters Stephanie, Elizabeth, and Kathryn) were a huge hit!


These events take place on behalf of all the members of the Bronxville Chamber of Commerce, the Village of Bronxville, the Bronxville Police, and the Bronxville DPW.

Breakfast with Santa is at the Bronxville Diner next Saturday, December 15.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
