“Thanks to the ingenuity of Huntington’s small business community, we have the Huntington Holiday Spectacular, running all season long on Wall Street in Huntington village, which will help bring more people into the entire village downtown area across the whole season, and not all at once like our parade traditionally would,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci, who led the countdowns for the lighting ceremonies, noting how the holiday parade that usually takes place had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. “And remember, metered parking is free in Huntington village during the entire holiday season!”

On Friday, November 27, Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci, Councilman Eugene Cook, Councilman Ed Smyth, Highway Superintendent Kevin S. Orelli, Receiver of Taxes Jillian Guthman and members of the Town of Huntington Small Business Economic Recovery Task Force were joined by members of the Huntington Business Improvement District (BID), Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce, Looks Great Services and State Senator Jim Gaughran for a lighting of the 65-foot “Tree of Hope.”
