It is almost the most wonderful time of the year.

To celebrate the winter holidays, downtown Bay Shore hosts its annual Winterfest at the Main Street Bandshell.

The event, sponsored by the Bay Shore Beautification Society and Chamber of Commerce of Greater Bay Shore, will be held on Saturday, Nov. 30, from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Between those times, locals get the opportunity to watch caroling, enjoy hot cocoa and cookies, and meet Santa Claus and Frosty the Snowman.

There was also a Christmas tree and Menorah lighting ceremony.
