The Radio City Rockettes shut down Sixth Avenue Thursday morning to help spread some Christmas cheer in the middle of August!
The annual “Christmas in August” took place outside of Radio City Music Hall at 11am with the world famous dancing troupe performing one of their numbers from the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, “New York at Christmas,” to kick off the 2017 holiday season.
Santa Claus, who came all the way from the North Pole, made an appearance on top of the music hall’s marquee to help introduce the show-stopping event along with 95.5 PLJ on-air host John Foxx.
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular will run from Nov. 10 through Jan. 1, 2018. Tickets are on sale now. For more information, head over to the Radio City Music Hall box office or rockettes.com/christmas.
