Hosted by your favorite MC’s Tracey and Mason, Santa is the star of the show, arriving red carpet-style at 5:30PM to cast the first holiday wish, then leading a parade to his newly designed winter chalet for photo memory-making.

Hungry March Band



The Mistletones

The Mistletones, a holiday a cappella quartet, have been spreading cheer for the past 10 years! With an upbeat, fun and festive feel, their music ranges from classic carols to modern holiday songs with arrangements that have a contemporary sound.


Hungry March Band

Hungry March Band fuses street band tradition with raw power and performance art antics. The band’s huge sound links traditional big band with free jazz and connects the sonic space between punk rock and global brass. This is what it looks like when the majorettes go AWOL, team up with the band geeks and throw an after-hours costumed dance party in the town square.


Members of New York City Gay Men’s Chorus

New York City Gay Men’s Chorus is a world-class, world-renowned New York institution and a pioneering voice for the LGBTQ community. Together, talented singers of various ages, backgrounds, and experiences produce a vibrant sound and energy that audiences can feel and connect with.
