On Friday, December 1, Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park will be hosting their annual Tree Lighting Skate-tacular beginning at 6pm. The ceremony will commence with an original theatrical ice production narrated by actress/singer, Jane Krakowski, and starring Broadway performer, Mattea Conforti. Also performing in the show are acclaimed Olympic and World Champion skaters Johnny Weir, Kimmie Meissner, Meryl Davis, Charlie White and Jeff Buttle. Following the show, all guests are welcome to grab a pair of skates and hop on the ice, which spreads across an impressive 17,000-square and is the city’s only free admission ice skating rink. As this year’s Skate-tacular is taking place on World Aid’s Day, Winter Village is continuing their tradition of celebrating the season of giving by partnering with (RED). Honoring their mission to create an AIDS-free generation, (RED) will be hosting a Shop-a-Thon kiosk where guests can shop and order products to support (SHOPATHON)RED, the organization’s annual shopping campaign. Complimentary gift wrapping will be also available during lunchtime hours for items purchased in the Holiday Shops.
