Two Major Holiday Happenings in New York

Two of New York City's most widely celebrated and anticipated events are quickly approaching- The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the lighting of the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center.

This year the Thanksgiving Day Parade will be turning 84 years old.

The parade will take place on Thursday, Nov. 25, starting at 77th Street and Central Park West and ending at 34th Street and Seventh Avenue with 3.5 million people spectators expected to be in attendance and an additional 50 million people expected to view the live television broadcast.  

The other highly anticipated holiday event is the annual lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. This year the 78th Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree will be revealed in all of its splendor, completely decorated, on Nov. 30. It will be on display until Jan. 2. 
During this time, the tree's Christmas lights will be lit between the hours of 5:30 a.m. and 11:30 p.m.
