Join us at the start of the holiday season to bring light and cheer to the East 125th Street corridor! On Saturday, November 19, we will host our annual holiday festival, where a street block is closed to traffic and the Uptown Grand Central plaza at 125th Street & Park Avenue is transformed with family-friendly fun.

This year's event will run from 1-5 p.m. and feature free train rides for kids, a bouncy house, face-painting, street games, and information from local nonprofit organizations and the Metro-North Railroad. You can also pick up a "train ticket" to travel to free samples from our member restaurants. Free swing dance lessons by the Harlem Swing Dance Society start at 3:30 p.m., followed by the tree lighting at 4:30 p.m. And all afternoon -- we'll have free hot chocolate for all!

Thanks to Apple Bank, Artimus Construcion, ddm development, Drakeford Realty Group, Positive Workforce & Tahl Propp Equities for making this year's holiday street lights possible.
