    2018 Washington Square Christmas Eve Caroling

    Monday, December 24, 2018
    5:00 – 6:00 pm

    Christmas Eve, Sunday, December 24 at 5:00 pm is the traditional time to celebrate the holiday with carols near the Washington Square Arch. The Rob Susman Brass Quartet, song leader, and the revelers from all over the city will lustily sing out the familiar tunes. The words are in the songbooks distributed by the Washington Square Association, but many will know them by heart. “Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men” will ring out and is especially meaningful this season.
