Midtown Winter Lights 2023

5:00pm – 11:00pm

The Midtown illumination is incredibly popular in the days leading up to Christmas (especially the 24th) with couples bringing a compulsory bottle of champers with them. If you want to avoid potential crowds, you should go early.

Every year, something new is added or changed to the program (especially since the pandemic). 2022 is no different.

A huge snow globe will be erected surrounded by colorful lights, along with smoke, bubbles, and a “Party Popper” tree that will change color. Next door, take your chance on the ice with the Midtown Ice Rink.
