Experience The Magic Of Radio City Christmas Spectacular! #RadioCityChristmas @RCChristmas #Ad



    Most New Yorkers will tell you that there are certain magical events and locations that define the holiday season here in New York City.  Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of attending the Radio City Christmas Spectacular at the iconic Radio City Music Hall.  Just seeing the beautiful and talented Rockettes in the commercials on television made me realize that seeing this event live would be a once in a lifetime opportunity.


Hanging out with the famous Radio City Rockettes!

    Recently, I had the privilege of not only attending the Radio City Christmas Spectacular with my family but of visiting the famous Roxy Suite at Radio City.  This suite is normally reserved for Radio City performers and VIPs like Elton John, Dave Matthews and Paul McCartney.  It boasts 20-foot-high domed ceilings made of real gold, cherrywood walls and an intimate dining area.  I could literally feel the spirit of the room’s history while I was in it.

    This year’s Radio City Christmas Spectacular includes dynamic songs and dance numbers starring the legendary Rockettes.  Attendees can also take a thrilling 3D ride through the skies of New York with Santa.

All this while being whisked up to the North Pole, as state-of-the-art technology that transforms Radio City Music Hall into a magical, immersive wonderland.  The show enchanted us  with Clara, ice skaters, dancing teddy bears, dozens of Santa Clauses and more surprises!


    My family and I cherished every moment that we spent at Radio City Music Hall and we will never forget the precious memories that we made together watching the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.  It was truly a magical experience that will live in our hearts forever!
