The Park Avenue neighborhood celebrated it's 19th annual "Holiday Open House" Thursday night. The event began with the ceremonial tree-lighting in the Park Avenue Green.

Park Avenue businesses opened their doors to the public, offering free samples and prizes, and Santa Claus also made a special appearance.

"It's just a very warm, friendly event - and like I said earlier, the neighbors come out, we get to see everybody before the long hibernation, and the crush of the holidays too. It's just a great way to start the holiday off," said Jimmy Catalano, Park Avenue Merchants Association.

Organizers say they hosted event-goers this year from all around Monroe County, and beyond.
