Light projections in downtown Patchogue


Coming back for a second run during the holiday season is “MoCA Lights: Merry & Bright.” Featuring projection art on the Patchogue Arts Council building on Terry Street, Bank of America on Main Street, and the Patchogue-Medford Library, “MoCA Lights Merry & Bright” will be a great immersive art experience for the whole family.

Running from Thursday, Dec. 9 to Sunday, Dec. 12, the event will be a village holiday celebration.

This year, the Patchogue Chamber of Commerce has co-sponsored the show with MoCA after the popularity of last year’s event.

“We’re very excited to bring back MoCa Lights this year. It was a huge success last year, and now that it’s even more known, it will be even bigger this year,” said chamber executive director David Kennedy.

Coinciding with the “MoCA Lights: Merry and Bright” festival will the chamber’s annual “Elf on a Shelf” promotion, where each day chamber elves Dave and Michelle (life-size cardboard elves) will be at different locations in Patchogue, and the person who finds the actual elf doll within the featured location will get a special deal for the day.

A free puppet show will be available in downtown Patchogue on Dec. 11 in conjunction with “MoCA Lights: Merry & Bright” starting at 6 p.m.

The Goat on a Boat puppeteers will put on “The Three Little Pigs” and “Hansel and Gretel.”

Goat on a Boat is a not-for-profit organization and one of only 50 puppet theaters in the country. “We consider puppetry to be the gateway to a lifelong love of theater,” said the founders of Goat on a Boat. The organization supports puppetry by presenting over 20 different regional, national and international companies each year.
