Despite the rain, residents came out for Highlandtown’s annual Holiday Kick-off celebration on Friday, Dec. 5, which included a quartet of performances by local dance troupe The Collective as well as music from Son Tres y Mas.

Santa Claus (Del. Luke Clippinger) was there, along with other politicians, including the rest of the 46th District delegation (Delegates Brooke Lierman and Pete Hammen and State Sen. Bill Ferguson), City Councilman Jim Kraft and Liam Davis of City Council President Bernard “Jack” Young’s office.

After the opening festivities, Santa lit the tree in front of the Southeast Anchor Library, Eastern Ave. and Conkling St., and the group headed over to the Fire Department’s Engine House 41 for the official opening of the Highlandtown Train Garden.
