Parents stressed that it’s important to keep traditions going and this holiday is a good and fun tradition.

“We do it every year,” Femmy Aziz, of Serengeti Design Studios, said. “It’s probably the most exciting holiday! We get about three to four hundreds kids coming down here in the hour. It’s just get bigger every year and more exciting.”
