Holiday Tree Lighting at the Seaport
Festive photo opps. Live music. Hot toddies and gingerbread. These are just some of the ingredients for a very merry night out at the Seaport. Bundle up and look for the big tree at the corner of Water and Fulton Streets, and get ready to mingle with neighbors and welcome the holiday season ahead.
The night will feature live performances, a chorus and drum line, as well as cozy adult beverages from Garden Bar. Kids are invited to join a Seaport Kids x Gingerbread cookie-decorating session at Gingerbread City, and will also have the opportunity to give their holiday wish lists to Santa. For anyone tackling their shopping list, Hester Street Fair vendors will have unique gifts for sale, and the South Street Seaport Museum’s introduction galleries are open for extended hours, from 5pm – 8pm, with the chance to craft your own holiday “Baggywrinkle,” or maritime-inspired decorations made from brightly colored yarn.
