Looks like Christmas trees have come to East Village Farm on Avenue A near the park. You can add this tree stand to the ones EV Grieve and Gothamist have spotted.

Meanwhile, a flyer advertising the 20th annual tree lighting at Tompkins Square Park promises music from the Mandel & Lydon Trio as well as the Theater for the New City’s Carolers of Olde New York, plus refreshments from Veselka and Life Cafe. (Yes, that Life Cafe.) The event, co-hosted by the East Village Parks Conservancy, the Third Street Music School Settlement, and the Tompkins Square Park Neighborhood Coalition, will take place at the southeast corner of the central lawn on Dec. 11 from 4 p.m. till 5 p.m.
