Lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree begins

The air of the Christmas season is already felt in our city, and proof of this is the lighting of the famous Rockefeller Center tree that comes to life on Wednesday night.

For people who wish to enjoy this popular celebration, the tree will remain lit every day from this Wednesday until January 13 from 5 in the morning until midnight.

On New Year’s Eve, the lights will be on until 9 p.m.

The tree is adorned with more than 50,000 lights, and at its tip it has a 900-pound Swarovski star that has been used since 2018.


Among those performing at the lighting ceremony tonight are Cher, Barry Manilow and the Radio City Rockettes.

This year’s tree is an 80-foot, 12-ton Norway spruce native to Vestal, New York, south of Syracuse.

It was cut down on November 9 and arrived in the city two days later.

This is the 91st celebration of the Rockefeller Center tree lighting.
