New York, NY (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
A 69 to100 feet tall Norway spruce, wrapped in 300,000 energy efficient LED lights with a 9.5 foot wide, 550 pound Swarovski star perched on top—is scheduled to be lit in Rockefeller Plaza (between West 48th and West 51st Streets and 5th and 6th Avenues) at 9pm on Wednesday, December 4th. The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony has been an honored tradition and one of New York City’s most celebrated events for over 80 years and now is the right time to starting planning to see this spectacular sight.
With each passing year, more and more people are crossing this event off their bucket lists, which can make Rockefeller Center get pretty crowded fairly quickly and New York City Vacation Packages (NYCVP) thought to offer some tips to make the best out of this truly enchanting experience.
When attending the Rockefeller Center Tree Lighting ceremony, keep in mind:
The tree will remain erected through January 7th. After the first official lighting on December 4th, the tree is illuminated daily from 5:30am until 11:30pm. On Christmas, the tree will be lit for a continuous 24-hours, and on New Year’s Eve the lights are turned off at 9:00pm in anticipation of the New Year’s Ball Drop in Times Square.
