80th Annual Tree Lighting
· Starts at 7pm, but arrive much much earlier.
· Performances end around 9pm
· Those performances include skaters on the ice rink, the Radio City Rockettes, and appearances from as-yet-announced stars (last year it was Olivia Wilde and Justin Bieber). · It's all free and cameras are welcome, but it will be very shoulder-to-shoulder crowded.
· The closest subway stop is 47-50th Street/Rockefeller Center with the B/D/M/F trains, but that will also be the busiest with highest security. We'd recommend 5th Ave/53rd St on the M/E or just walking south down 5th Avenue from the 5th/59th Street stop on the Q/N/R.
Keep up with the Christmas tree and enter to win a trip to see the tree lighting on the official Rockefeller Center site.
