It’s time for the annual Madison Square Park tree lighting event, tonight (Tuesday, December 10th) in Madison Square Park. It’s free for all.
Currently hosted by the Madison Square Park Conservancy, a tree lighting ceremony in Madison Square Park started in 1912 and was one of the first public tree lightings in the United States.
It starts at 3:30pm with music from The New York Life Singers, Audra Rox, treats from Hill Country Pie Kitchen, Hill Country Chicken and SD26 Restaurant & Wine Bar, as well as a holiday planting and crafts, courtesy of the Conservancy.
Then the lighting happens at 5pm.
