Celebrate the season in Manhattan’s Victorian winter wonderland at the Central Park Conservancy’s 14th Annual Holiday Lighting. Enjoy hot cocoa, live carolers, cookie decorating, crafts, and an opportunity to meet and take photographs with Father Christmas. The event culminates with the lighting of thousands of tiny LED lights strung along the architectural features of Central Park’s northernmost visitor center, the Victorian-style Charles A. Dana Discovery Center overlooking the Harlem Meer. Be sure to bring your camera! Founding Sponsor: ConEd.
