Outshine the Rockefeller Tree with our Promotional Products

28th November 2018 in Days of the year

Tonight New York shines bright as the stars come out and the Rockefeller Tree lights up. Thousands of New Yorkers—and revelers from across the country—will be rocking around the Christmas Tree with musical performances from some of the biggest names in the musical industry including Tony Bennett and Martina McBride.

The Rockefeller tree will remain lit and on display at the plaza between West 48th and 51st Streets and Fifth and Sixth Avenues until 9pm on January 7. Each year, thousands crowd the sidewalks for the event and millions watch the live broadcast.

The celebration is free and access is first come, first serve, so arrive early to beat the crowds. Tree Lighting History For over eight decades, the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, and the holiday decorations adorning and surrounding, have stood as a holiday beacon for New Yorkers and visitors. From the beginning, the tree was a gathering place and reflection of what was happening in the world around it. Even before the first formal tree went up, workers lined up beneath a Christmas tree on the Rockefeller Plaza construction site to collect their paychecks during the height of the Great Depression.

People from around the world came after September 11th to see the Tree decorated in a patriotic red, white and blue. Today, more than half a million people pass by the tree every day, making Rockefeller Center the epicenter of New York City’s holiday celebrations. For the twelfth consecutive year, the 2018 Christmas Tree will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. Once the holidays have passed and crowds have dispersed, the tree comes down and is milled, treated and made into lumber that is used for home building The tree must exceed 65 feet to be selected for the honor of gracing Rockefeller Center. The tallest tree selected was a 100 foot Norway Spruce from Killingworth, Connecticut.
