When Melba and Tim, also known as 'Mr. Christmas’, started decorating parts of downtown for Christmas in 1996, little did they know they’d be leading a group of over 40 volunteers dedicated to making Astoria’s downtown full of festive lights, decorations and Christmas cheer over 25 years later. ADHDA is the proud fiscal sponsor for the Christmas Club, if you’d like to support them with a donation, head this way. 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes directly to making our downtown the beautiful holiday extravaganza we look forward to ever year!
