This year’s theme is UGLY SWEATER. Please come in your most unattractive attire! MAP will have holiday trees on display decorated by children aged 4 to 16 with ornaments created at our ornament-making workshops where 100% of all ornament sales will go to the young artists who created them. The atmosphere will be cheerful with some holly jolly tunes by DJ Aran Keating of Ridiculous Entertainment and Drag Queens Whimsy Thrift & Brooklyn Heights! MAP is also bringing Captain Cookie and the Milkman truck offering made-from-scratch cookies, local creamery milk, and made-to-order ice cream sandwiches! Later, join us in the basement for screenings of claymation classics and music (entertainment TBA).
