There's excitement in the air on Marine Avenue as the tree sparkles at the Fire Station, and a portion of the street is filled with snow. While it's an unlikely sight for this spot, it looks so natural (and fun) as the children arrive with boots on, also wearing mittens to craft snowmen in this delightful holiday experience that's family-friendly and free for all!
