Bronx Zoo Holiday Lights

Bronx Zoo, West Farms, Bronx
to

Holiday Lights via Bronx Zoo

The Lights are back again, and this year the display is spread out across a larger part of the zoo to accommodate social distancing. The increased size of the display also brings more light-up animals! There will be 50 new animal lanterns, separated into regional areas that feature animals grouped together by their native region of the world.

Just like Boo at the Zoo in October, Holiday Lights will require tickets purchased in advance that are in limited supply to ensure the display doesn't get too crowded at once. Face coverings and social distancing will be required.

In addition to the animal-shaped lanterns, there will be music, ice carving, costumed characters, stilt walkers, a bird meet-and-greet, souvenirs, an animated LED tree, and seasonal treats like hot chocolate and s’mores.

Check the Bronx Zoo website to view the full schedule and buy tickets.

Rockefeller Center tree via baaelectronics on Flickr

The biggest tree in NYC has been lighting up Rockefeller Center for 88th years as of 2020! All eyes are on the city when the tree is lit, but you'll need to stop by early to get some standing room in Rockefeller Plaza if you want to see the celebration in person. The tree for 2020 is a 75-foot tall Norway spruce from Oneonta, NY, about 3 hours north of the city. The tree is lifted into place early in November and surrounded by scaffolding as the 50,000 LED lights are installed. The night of the lighting is a huge event that is broadcast on TV, featuring ice skating, musical performances, and celebrity guests. Even if you are out of town during the holidays, you may still have time to see the tree as it is usually on display nightly until the middle of January.

Not quite a single tree lighting, but an entire neighborhood lighting! The homes along 83rd to 86th Street and Eleventh to Thirteenth Avenue begin putting up massive Christmas displays right after Thanksgiving, but most displays will be up and running by December 15th. Make the trip south to Dyker Heights (near the Verrazzano Bridge) on any night from Thanksgiving to Christmas and experience one of the most spectacular light displays the city has to offer! It's best to visit on the weekends when most displays will be lit, and plan your visit beforehand to factor in travel time.
