“In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation to many residents within the Town, as well as island-wide events such as this are essential to help those in need,” said Councilman Anthony Macagnone.

The show will be coordinated with assistance from Hicksville’s Boys and Girls Club, the Hicksville Chamber of Commerce, and the Northwest Civic Association.

Operating model train layouts will be on display with no vendor sales taking place.
