Highlandtown kicked off its holiday celebrations last Friday night with stilt walkers and jugglers—through VS Entertainment and Events—and a musical performance by Sac Au Lait. The Christmas tree at Conkling and Eastern avenues was officially lit by Santa Claus (46th District Delegate Luke Clippinger), who also presided over the official opening of the Highlandtown Train Garden.
Others present were State Senator Bill Ferguson, City Councilman Jim Kraft, Delegate Peter Hammen and Liam Davis of City Council President Jack Young’s office, as well as community members and neighborhood people. The event was organized by Highlandtown Main Street.
