November | Events to Feel the Holiday Spirit

November 05, 2018

November is one of the most magical months in NYC. From the lighting of Rockefeller Center's Christmas Tree to Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, it’s easy to immerse yourself in holiday cheer. Add these three quintessential New York City activities to your itinerary this month.

Radio City Christmas Spectacular
Feel the vibrant energy of the Rockettes as they hit the stage brighter and more lively than ever. The brand-new finale staged by Tony-nominated director Sam Buntrock incorporates technology and live entertainment to bring 100 small flying drones, one of the largest 8K LED displays in the world, and live aerialist together in what is sure to be an unforgettable performance.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
What a wonderful way to celebrate Thanksgiving. Join 3.5 million revelers on the streets of NYC to watch one of the oldest Thanksgiving Day parades in the United States. Started in 1924, the tradition lives on, but the floats are ever-changing. Keep your eyes open for the newcomers like Little Cloud from artists collective FriendsWithYou.

2018 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting
Tens of thousands of people come to see the lighting of the majestic spruce that glows above Rockefeller Center's ice skating rink. The event takes place on November 28th from 7 pm - 9 pm and is the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season.
