MAHOPAC, N.Y. - The Mahopac Falls Fire Department held its annual tree-lighting festivities Friday, Dec. 6, featuring a visit from St. Nick.

With cookies and refreshments at the ready, people were welcomed to the firehouse off Route 6N with the sound of sirens in the distance meaning that Santa was indeed keeping his promise to stop by. Pulling up on a firetruck, Santa bid hello to all the children who were waiting to get their handmade wish lists delivered to the jolly old elf himself.

Santa flipped the switch bringing to life the tree and the many light displays that keep people coming back to the Falls year after year.

The members of the Mahopac Falls Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank all who came out to support them and enjoy the festivities.
