With the weather outside so frightful, a tree lighting ceremony may not be so delightful.

So the Bayport-Blue Point Chamber of Commerce has decided to postpone tonight’s Christmas Tree Lighting & Santa for Bayport-Blue Point. The event had been scheduled for 7 p.m. on the front lawn of Bayport-Blue Point High School.

“We are very sorry, but this weather is not cooperating … so we are cancelling for now for the comfort and safety of everyone,” the Chamber announced in a Facebook post. “We will be working with the school on a possible rain-date and it will be posted on our social media.”

The annual event features a Santa Claus arrival on a fire truck, holiday music and snacks.

The chamber’s Menorah Lighting is set for Dec. 22 at Chamber Park 5 pm.
