Bayside residents were likely not dreaming of a wet Christmas, but that's what they got Sunday evening during an annual holiday festival at Bell Boulevard and 53rd Avenue.
The Bayside Hills Civic Association held its 19th annual holiday festival during which attendees sang holiday songs, drank hot chocolate and lit a Christmas tree and menorah.
A large group of local residents turned out for the festival despite rainy weather and huddled under umbrellas as they sang along to holiday tunes performed by P.S. 203's Squeezebox 9.
State Assemblywoman-elect Nily Rozic and U.S. Rep.-elect Grace Meng were among the revelers.
