Washington Square Park Christmas Tree Arrives Monday, November 30th | Tree Lighting December 9th

Washington Square Park just announced that the 91st annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony will be held Wednesday, December 9th at 6pm prompt.

The Rockefeller Center Tree is more well-known, but it’s 83-year tradition is a bit shy of the 91-year history that the Washington Square Park tree holds.

Though the tree arrives on Monday, it won’t be lit for eleven days so you can still get a good photo of it under the arch before the lights go up if you want.
