When was the was the last time you saw Santa in a Rickshaw riding up and down Flatbush Avenue?

Or, maybe…. When was your First time?   It was probably on December 20, 2008 when the North Flatbush Avenue BID local merchants donated  a driver, a Rickshaw and Santa Claus to ride up and down Flatbush Avenue from Plaza Street to Atlantic Avenue handing out candy canes to the children of the Park Slope/Prospect Heights area.

Then, like a Pied Piper, the children followed Santa along Flatbush Avenue to the warmth of the Avon Products store located at 229 Flatbush Avenue. Once inside, besides a beautifully decorated tree, the children had a chance to tell Santa what their christmas wishes were while sitting on his lap. The BID provided delicious hot chocolate and cookies for the children and their families.
