At 5 p.m., Santa Claus will ride a fire truck down the street to 76 South Orange Avenue to visit Village President Alex Torpey and let him know if he has been naughty or nice. If he’s been nice, they will flip the switch to light the village’s Christmas tree. The tree lighting ceremony is sponsored by Keller Williams Midtown Direct.
