Come celebrate Central Park’s 17th Holiday lighting in northern Central Park on Thursday, December 5th from 5:30 – 6:30. There will be an ice carved sculpture, singing of carols on the Plaza and you can take your photo with Santa (bring your own camera). There will also be hot cocoa and cookies. The event tops off with the lighting of the Dana Discovery Center and a flotilla of 17 trees on the Harlem Meer.
The event is organized by the Womens’ Committee of the Central Park Conservancy and sponsored by Con Ed.
Free. Families only no groups. Strollers are not allowed on the plaza but stroller parking will be provided. For more info see the link below.

Always a colorful feast for the senses, the 2013 African American Day Parade also brought out the stars of the current New York political scene. A convertible ferrying Grand Marshals Congressman Charles Rangel and former Mayor David Dinkins led the charge up Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard, followed by former Controller and perhaps-Mayoral runoff candidate Bill Thompson.
Bronx Borough President and Independent Mayoral Candidate Adolfo Carrion marched closely behind. Council member and Public Advocate candidate Letitia James was also there waving to the crowds, as was Manhattan Borough President and Democratic Controller hopeful Scott Stringer.
Toward the end, current Public Advocate and Democratic Mayoral primary winner –who in past parades walked toward the front– was this time riding large on a float with his wife and a live band.
Of course it’s not all about the politics, it’s also about the people.
