The first ever Connetquot Winter Wonderland recently took place at Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School, drawing in thousands of community families, friends, teachers and administrators to witness the spectacular holiday themed events planned for the evening.

Visitors to the event were amazed by the colors, lights, and decorations outside of the school building, as holiday music was played by both the OBMS string ensemble and Band.  OBMS Junior Honor Society members entertained the children visitors with competitive games, face painting and other fun activities while adults had the chance  to win gift baskets, purchase raffles and visit vendors with all sorts of decorative holiday items for sale.

“Our goal was to create that magical moment from days past where the entire neighborhood would turn out at the village square to enjoy the special atmosphere of the season with friends and family,” said Raymond Carta, President of the Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School Parent-Teacher Association. “We wished for the children of our community to experience and enjoy, this Winter Wonderland we set up.”
