It definitely will not be a silent night. On December 21st, carolers of all talent levels will wind their way through Jackson Heights as part of the fifth annual, snow-or-shine Winter Holiday Sing-A-Long. The event strives to be as all-inclusive and multi-cultural as possible, and participants will sing seasonal and holiday favorites from various faiths and in various tongues, including American Sign Language, thanks to students and faculty from the Lexington School for the Deaf. Service animals are welcome, and Santa hats and other seasonal costumes are encouraged. Some revelers will bring acoustic instruments, sheet music, candles, flashlights and recording devices. The stroll begins in front of Cassidy’s Ale House at 31st Avenue and 75th Street, and the group will determine the route and the right time to head back to the neighborhood watering hole for a warm-up party at individual expense.
Details: Jackson Heights Winter Holiday Sing-A-Long, meet on the corner of 31st Avenue and 75th Street in front of Cassidy’s Ale House, December 21st, 7 pm to 10 pm, free with cash party afterward.
