On Saturday, December 1, the Bridgeport Lakeport Civic Organization, Point Place Casino and several Bridgeport community organizations will kick-off the holiday season with Bridgeport’s Annual Community Christmas Party and Tree Lighting, a free to attend event.

Celebrating its first holiday season since opening in March, the Oneida Indian Nation’s Point Place Casino is proudly joining Bridgeport’s annual tradition by offering the community a festive fireworks display. For the last nine months, Point Place Casino has provided residents and people throughout the region a new destination for food, entertainment and fun and established new partnerships with community leaders, including the Bridgeport Lakeport Civic Organization.

The Christmas Party & Tree Lighting will begin at the Bridgeport Firehouse with pizza, hot dogs and drinks, plus a visit from Santa, face painting and holiday crafts.  Two hours later, the festivities will move down the road to the United Methodist Church to light the giant Christmas tree, which will be immediately followed by the fireworks display at Point Place Casino, visible from the church and various points around Bridgeport.
