Tree Lighting Ceremony At Rockefeller Center

Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center

On next Wednesday, December 3rd, the 2014 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree will be lit for the first time. Overlooking the ice rink, and the gilded statue of Prometheus, the tree will remain the centerpiece for Rockefeller Center until the lights are turned off on January 7th, 2015.

A large tree has been erected in Rockefeller Center since 1933. ranging from 69 ft. to 100 ft. tall. The tree is almost always a Norway Spruce. A 9.5ft. diameter, 550lb “Swarovski Star” will be placed at the top of the tree, accompanied by 45,000 LED lights that are draped on the tree's branches.
