It’s time for some holiday cheer. The annual Holiday Promenade in the East Village kicks off of Friday, the first of five weeks of events. Starting at dusk each Friday until Dec. 17, there will be holiday-themed activities, entertainment and shopping—East Village shops are encouraged to remain open until 9 p.m. At 6 p.m. this Friday, organizers will light up the Christmas tree at the Brenton Skating Plaza.
Other Promenade themes include a 12 Days of Christmas scavenger hunt (Nov. 26), a horse-drawn trolley ride (Dec. 10) and a fireworks show (Dec. 17). Find the rest of the schedule on the Partnership website.
