Kick off Christmastime in the Big Apple!
Nothing marks the beginning of the magical holiday season in New York City like the lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. It’s a worldwide symbol of the holidays. This year, the tree will be lit for the first time on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022, with live performances from chart-topping pop stars scheduled for 7–9 p.m. This iconic event takes place at Rockefeller Plaza between West 48th and West 51st Streets and Fifth and Sixth Avenues. With VIP tickets to the tree lighting ceremony, you can have the best views of the event. In case you don’t get enough postcard-perfect pictures the night of, the tree will remain lit until January 6th, 2023.
The Search for the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree
This is the type of nostalgic, heart-warming, feel-good event that you only see in the movies. Every year, event organizers look high and low (er, maybe just high) for a tree grand enough to stand out from the city skyline. The average tree is over 70 feet tall and weighs some 12 tons. Previous trees have come from Upstate New York, Maryland and locations far and wide. As you can imagine, transporting this type of precious cargo is almost a miracle in itself.
Once the tree arrives in the city, it’s decorated with over 50,000 environmentally friendly LED lights. That’s over 5 miles of wire! The tree is crowned by a Swarovski crystal star that weighs 900 pounds and has 3 million crystals. You’re gonna need more than a Little Giant to put that tree topper on! They used a crane. Tens of thousands crowd the sidewalks for the event, and hundreds of millions watch the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting Ceremony broadcast live across the globe. The best part is that you can be there enjoying the goings on from an extra-special VIP platform that offers incredible views of the tree, the presenters and the performers.
