You survived another year of mom’s over-cooked turkey, Aunt Sadie’s endless questions about your love life (or lack thereof), and a no-holds-barred Black Friday brawl. So instead of updating your OKCupid profile or trying to wall mount that 70″ flat screen you scored for $25 (and 2 black eyes), head over to South Street Seaport’s Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on December 2 at 5:45pm!

There you will find a giant tree just waiting to be lit up by you (arrive by 4pm to score a free Xyloband*), an amazing lineup of live entertainment–including a DJ set by Questlove–and lots of family-friendly activities, hot drinks, and so much more.

The Tree Lighting is but one part of the fantastic Winter/Edit holiday event series. The outdoor ice rink is open every day. Skate and helmet rentals are available, and residents in 10038, 10004, and 10005 zip codes receive 50% off admission and rental fees with valid ID! Bring the whole family and enjoy warm drinks, live entertainment and art on ice all winter long, only at the Seaport.

While you’re there, don’t forget to stop in and visit the many great vendors. Grab a bite at Ambrose Hall, Haagen Dazs or one of the delicious food trucks. Check off your holiday gift list at Guess, Superdry, Pasanella’s and many more. Or stroll through the Fulton Stall Market, open every day from 11am to 5pm.
