The Copiague community bundled in their rain gear for the first neighborhood’s first Lighted Children’s Christmas Parade Friday night.

Note: Typically, this event is held during the day time.

The parade ran down Great Neck Road, beginning at Montauk Highway and ending Dixon Avenue.

The marching led to a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Gateway Park. After that, the festivities headed indoors at Our Lady Assumption, where there were food and beverages, music, and pictures with Santa Claus.
