Jackie Robinson Park of Fame hosts 27th annual tree lighting
The Jackie Robinson Park of Fame in Stamford kicked off the holiday season Tuesday with its 27th annual tree lighting.
There was live holiday music and free hot chocolate and doughnuts.
Mayor-elect Caroline Simmons was also in attendance.
Santa Claus was also at the park, making children smile and joining in on the festivities.
"We look forward each year to try and make a difference in helping the community rejoice and enjoy themselves and the kids to know that there's a tree actually in our west side neighborhood," said John Derosa, of the Jackie Robinson Park of Fame.
