DANNY AIELLO, NANCY KERRIGAN, BRIAN BOITANO
AND JOHNNY WEIR STAR IN FIRST-EVER TREE LIGHTING SKATE-TACULAR
AT BANK OF AMERICA WINTER VILLAGE AT BRYANT PARKWHAT: New to the annual Tree Lighting, Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park presents an original theatrical ice skating show, narrated by Danny Aiello and starring Olympic skating greats: Nancy Kerrigan, Brian Boitano, Johnny Weir and Davis & White.
The Tree Lighting Skate-tacular is a holiday tale about a very special family on the night before Christmas, written for Bryant Park by New York playwright Jon Caren. The show features music from Big Band Holidays, a new album by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis. The public can skate to live music curated by Jazz at Lincoln Center after the tree is lit.
The event, which coincides with Giving Tuesday and World AIDS Day, sustains the season of giving at Bryant Park by spotlighting Bank of America’s support of (RED). On this day, Bank of America is contributing $.30, the cost of a full day of life-changing medication, to (RED)’s fight against AIDS for every purchase made at participating Winter Village merchants with a Bank of America credit or debit card.

The Bank of America Winter Village is one of my favorite places in the city during the holiday season! This sounds like a great event to see the fabulous tree lighting this year!
Here are some cool items I found in the shops this year:
This looked to die for! From Mr Puffin NYC , just one of the "many" items that are very drool worthy ! Nutella and bananas are such a great combo!
The infinity lights were really pretty neat and I was having a hard time not purchasing one! I love color and these are for sure colorful! This is a great place to shop for unique gifts during the holiday season.
