MASSENA—The New York Power Authority has rescheduled its holiday pajama and movie party for Monday, Dec. 22 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.   The event, originally planned for Friday, Dec. 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., was postponed due to inclement weather.

If you registered for Friday’s event, you need to re-register for the new Monday date.  Registration for the event can be made by calling 315-764-0226, ext. 302. All children who are preregistered will receive a special holiday memento.

The holiday party will be held at St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power Project’s admission-free Frank S. McCullough, Jr. Hawkins Point Visitors Center.

Children are encouraged to come in their pajamas and snuggle down to watch short, animated holiday movies including “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” (1966), “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (1964), “Frosty the Snowman” (1969), “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” (1970) and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (1965). Movies will be shown in the visitors center theater. The pajama party will also feature a visit from Santa Claus and a holiday craft project.  

In addition to the movies, visitors can sample the array of hands-on exhibits at the Hawkins Point facility, which presents information on such themes as water power and the St. Lawrence-FDR project, basics of electricity and uses of electricity. Another highlight is the panoramic view of the project’s power dam from Hawkins Point.
