It's that time of year again! The trees are sparkling with Christmas lights and the city is painted red and green. A major tell tale sign of the holiday season is when the Rockettes kick off the season with the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Located at the iconic Radio City Music Hall, the Christmas Spectacular is the perfect way to get anyone into the holiday spirit.
Needing a boost before the start of finals, my friends and I hopped on the Metro North and spent the evening with the Rockettes and Santa. The theme of this years show is full of high spirited song and dance numbers with a modern day technology twist. Through the lens of 3D glasses the audience watches as a mother and daughter learn the meaning of Christmas through a virtual video game complete with flying elves and high kicking Rockettes. If you've seen the show before, you'll notice a change in story line as well as all the crowd favorites.
Nothing makes you feel more like a child than a show with dancing toys and Santa narrating the true meaning of Christmas to the audience. The show is also located just outside Rockefeller Center where the tree can be seen standing and ready to be lit. The area is also decorated to the brim with dancing light shows and wreaths galore.
Whether you're looking to get into the holiday spirit, take a break from the textbooks, or visit a childhood memory, the Radio City Christmas Spectacular is the perfect way to do that. So put on your ugliest Christmas sweater, grab a few friends and go have a spectacular evening in the City!
