One of the most famous traditions of Christmas in New York is the lit Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, and it is the date on which the New York Christmas kick-off is given. This year the ceremony will be held on 29 November, from then until 7 January 2018 will be when we can see this tree illuminated, symbol of Christmas in New York for more than 80 years, and is illuminated with more than 50.000 LED bulbs last generation.

When is the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lit?

The November 28 from 7 to 9 in the afternoon will be the 86 edition of the opening ceremony of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, attendance at this event is free but large crowds are formed, so it is recommended to go very soon to take a place, so my recommendation is to enjoy it as every year watching the television broadcast made by NBC for all the country quietly from the hotel or the apartment and go to see the Christmas tree lit in the following days.

The Rockefeller Center tree will remain lit until the 9 in the afternoon of the 7 of January of 2017, so you are going to have all the Christmases to be able to make a nice photo with him.

Christmas tree lighting schedule

El Rockefeller Center tree lighting schedule is quite broad, from 5: 30 in the morning to the 12 in the evening, yes, the whole area of ​​the Rockefeller Center square will be crowded with people these days, so we recommend you go to take pictures with the Christmas tree at no usual, on weekdays, when there are fewer people, or on very cold days, because people are not stopped, they take a picture and they run away to take shelter.

In any case, I recommend you to have a lot of patience if you want to take a good photo near the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.
