Hundreds of Children and their parents came to the Kips Bay gym on Randall Avenue for the Annual 43rd Precinct Christmas Show. There was food, entertainment, Santa Claus, and toys for the children. This event was co-sponsored by Assemblyman Marcos Crespo, Councilman Ruben Diaz, and the Bronx County Fairs and Expo Association Inc.
Assemblyman Marcos Crespo did an excellent job of introducing those who helped put the Christmas shoe together, the elected officials who showed up, and the very orderly continuous procession of children going on to the stage to see Santa, have their photo taken and then receive a present from Santa. 500 gifts were set up on the stage behind Santa, and the few that were not given out will go to other children in shelters.
