A Community Tradition
What started the Huntington Holiday Spectacular tradition?
A challenge. Or, should we say, a pandemic?
Back in 2020, the holidays were looking a bit different than any other year – unlike anything we could have ever imagined. We were isolated and divided, longing for our sense of community to return.
As everyone struggled to find their way in this new situation, Huntington Village decided to bring everyone out of their homes and together in the heart of our town. How did they do it? With a 75-foot Holiday Tree of Hope. It renewed our spirit and rekindled our love for our neighbors and friends. And, life.
Each year that followed, the Huntington Village Business Improvement District (BID) has brought it back to us – and this year is no exception. It has quickly become a much-anticipated community tradition.
This year, the tree and celebration are in honor of frontline workers. After all, their hard work and dedication to the safety and health of our community is how this Holiday Spectacular was born in the first place.
Coming Together Under the Holiday Lights
Ask anyone who has previously been to this holiday event and they will be able to highlight some of their most memorable moments. You will likely hear stories about singing and dancing performances, an incredible ice carver, and the mesmerizing light show that all top the list and make the experience so magical.
And who can forget the delicious treats of donuts, pastries, and hot chocolate that spark smiles throughout the crowd?
If this year will be your first year celebrating the holidays in Huntington, you won’t want to miss all of the events that the BID has lined up for the joyous occasion. A few of the highlights include:
