The First Annual North End Winter Wonderland event was a hit at the Nazzaro Center. The courtyard was decorated by Steven “Virgil” Virgilio with a big outdoor Christmas tree and life-size decorations and lights, courtesy of DePasquale Ventures.

Kids enjoyed crafts by the Salvation Army and Santa was on hand so every child left with a gift. Participants brought basic toiletries and unwrapped toys that were donated to the Salvation Army shelter.
On behalf of the Nazzaro Center, Director Steven Siciliano would like to express gratitude to all the volunteers and businesses who made this new annual event possible. In particular, the organizers would like to give special thanks to the following:
Mayor Martin J. Walsh
Nazzaro Center Staff & Council Members
