It’s Christmas in August for the iconic Radio City Rockettes as they performed outside Radio City Music Hall on Sixth Avenue today.
The excitement began when Santa Claus made his yearly summertime trip from the North Pole in front of the marquee when the double decker Gray Line CitySightseeing bus came chugging down the avenue with favorite number ‘New York at Christmas.‘
Part of the excitement is the Radio City Rockettes and The Madison Square Garden Company announcing the Gift of Joy program bringing the spirit of the holidays to those who need extra cheer. John Foxx from 95.5 PLJ will kick off the festivities.
The Christmas Spectacular (presented by Chase) runs from Nov. 10 2017 thru Jan. 1, 2018. Tickets go on sale this morning Aug. 17 www.rockettes.com/christmas and the Radio City box office.
