Entertainment will be provided by students and instructors from the North End Music and Performing Arts Center, singer Sharon Zeffiro performing a selection of holiday classics, Jamaica Plain singer-songwriter A. P. Black, “the crooner of Venezuela” Gian Faraone, and special guests Santa Claus, Rudolph, and Frosty.  In addition, the Acting Postmaster of Boston, Leroy Middleton, Jr., will unveil the new US Postal Service holiday stamp.
