BY MARK GOODSON — The Riverdale Park Festival of Lights and Holiday Market had the typical Riverdale Farmer’s Market feel. Local vendors, craftspeople and artists offered provided a variety of entertainment and items for purchase. In addition, the holiday spirit was in the air.

It was a mild night. Visitors enjoyed a variety of live music. Santa visited the children during the day, and trolley rides were offered at night. The trolleys toured the Christmas displays of Riverdale Park residents, while riders sang Christmas carols.
