Antonio’s Barber Shop in New Windsor switched on its renowned Christmas light display on Sunday, Nov. 27. About 85 people attended the free event, which featured a small fireworks show, music, snacks, hot chocolate and a guest appearance by Santa Claus and his reindeer. The display, located at 28 Riley Rd., is currently visible from 5 p.m. until 9:30 p.m., barber shop owner Antonio Mugnano, 41, said. The barber shop is located at the same address as his home. Residents are encouraged to take photos of the display and share them on social media, Mugnano said. The weather was “beautiful” at the lighting. It started raining, but only after everyone had left, he said. The event was formerly held on Cimorelli Drive since 2001, and moved to its current location in Dec. 2013. “It’s our way of giving back to the community for the kids,” said Mugnano.
