The Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park will open next week …before we even get to Halloween. Forget your Harley Quinn Costume, it’s already Christmas apparently.
If it feels like we are starting Christmas activities earlier every year, it’s not your imagination. We are… in the case of The Bank of America Winter Village it’s only a day earlier than last year.
The unseasonably warm weather we enjoyed recently has thrown the city’s seasonal-radar out of whack. We get it, we’re not even past Halloween yet! Like it or not, we’re only 9 weeks away from Christmas, and only one week away from the Bryant Parks Holiday Market opening.
Next Saturday, Bryant Park re-opens its winter wonderland for the 16th year. Along with 125 shopping kiosks and food vendors, also returning to the Winter Village is their free ice-skating on Bryant Park’s 17,000-square-foot outdoor rink.
A big part of the Village is their European inspired open-air market. Stalls feature artisans from around the world, located along Bryant Park’s allées and terraces, the Holiday Shops are housed in custom-designed, “jewel box” kiosks.
I guess we’re skipping Fall this year guys. The Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park will open on October 28, 2017, until January 2, 2018, Monday to Friday: 11am-8pm, Saturday & Sunday: 10am-8pm.
