A Wonderful Winter’s Eve
On December 2, 2013 over 20,000 locals, commuters and tourists flocked to the Upper West Side for the 14th Annual Winter’s Eve at Lincoln Square, New York’s largest outdoor holiday festival.
Families and grandparents, students and professionals, arts lovers, foodies and shoppers packed Dante Park and stretched up Broadway to watch Winter’s Eve headliner, folk legend Arlo Guthrie along with Rosie’s Theater Kids, Michael Bacon, Frank London’s Klezmer Brass All-Stars, and WABC-TV’s Sade Baderinwa on the main stage. The celebration kicked off with the Upper West Side’s traditional tree lighting ceremony.
Lincoln Square’s sidewalks and public spaces came alive with over 20 live, free performances that included processional groups, stilt-walkers, ice-sculptures, dancers and other great entertainment.
Over 30 of Lincoln Square’s finest restaurants and eateries offered delectable food tastings and savory samples of signature dishes to warm spirits at three outdoor locations. And, dozens of local stores and neighborhood institutions hosted activities and offered holiday cheer throughout the evening.
