Entertainment will be provided by students and teachers from the North End Music and Performing Arts Center and singer Sharon Zeffiro will perform a selection of holiday classics.  Refreshments, holiday treats, and giveaways will be provided by the Marriott Long Wharf Hotel, Joe’s American Bar & Grill Waterfront, Magic 106.7, “Bad Santa 2,” and a special appearance by one of the characters from “Trolls” now in theaters from 20th Century Fox and Dreamworks.
