Another Wonderful Winter’s Eve
The food was tremendous. The music was great. And the public came out in droves to celebrate this year’s Winter’s Eve at Lincoln Square. The night kicked off to an exciting start at the annual Winter’s Eve Tree Lighting ceremony at Dante Park. Event-goers eagerly packed the park, spilling out onto Lincoln Center’s plaza and filling the surrounding streets to see renowned singer songwriter Suzanne Vega, Lucy and Rod from Avenue Q, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, and special guest Laurie Berkner.
WABC-TV’s Sade Baderinwa helped light the Upper West Side Holiday Tree, which was made extra shiny thanks to the beautiful glass glitter ornaments from Wendy Addison and Tinsel Trading in conjunction with the American Folk Art Museum. The tree will be on display through January 2013. Immediately following the tree lighting, the sidewalks along Broadway came alive from Time Warner Center to 68th Street. Local cultural organizations and businesses opened their doors to the public and provided live entertainment, shopping specials and holiday cheer. This year, more restaurants and eateries than ever participated in the annual food tastings, and they did not disappoint. Lines were full of hungry foodies eagerly waiting to sample some of the City’s best cuisine.
We are tremendously grateful to our sponsors and partners, who help make this event a success, year after year. See you at Winter’s Eve 2013 on Monday, December 2, 2013… check back for details!
