ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) —One local neighborhood is getting ready for the holidays!

The North Clinton Avenue Business Administration held its 23rd annual Christmas tree lighting and parade Thursday morning. The event had been on pause for the last two years because of the pandemic.

This year, the tree was lit in honor of first responders. Emergency response teams, Monroe County Executive Adam Bello, and other elected officials were in attendance.

It wasn’t just the Christmas spirit being shared as organizers said they worked with the elected leaders to give out information of COVID vaccines and vaccine locations around town.
