The ice rink is open and the Christmas Tree is in place. It is still being put together and decorated, but it will be lit on the Friday after Thanksgiving, known as "Black Friday" at 6:00pm. The tree lighting ceremony is always a fun time. "Black Friday" in the Union Square area is one of my favorite days of the year. It has an incredible buzz and the area is filled with shoppers, protestors, kooks and more. I love it!
