If there’s one thing that New York City does right, it’s the holidays. If you plan to be in NYC in the coming months, our staff here at Empire Rent A Car wants to make sure you don’t miss out on some local holiday-themed events. Here are three of our favorites.

NYC Events

October: Scarecrows & Pumpkins

Stop by the New York Botanical Gardens in The Bronx between September 23 and October 31, 2017, to see some mammoth carved pumpkins on display! You can see monstrous pumpkins strewn throughout the gardens and take photos with some of your favorites. You can also come during a special event, the Giant Pumpkin Weekend, taking place October 21 and 22.

November: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

If you’re in NYC for Thanksgiving, don’t miss out on one of the most popular parades in the world: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Yes, you’ll have to deal with the crowds, but seeing those building-size balloons firsthand will be well worth it.

December: Radio City Christmas Spectacular

What’s Christmas without the Christmas Spectacular, featuring the famous Rockettes? Enjoy the delights of the season by catching a Christmas Spectacular show. You can choose from a variety of shows between November 10, 2017, and January 1, 2018, but don’t wait until the last minute. This event is popular year after year, so it would be wise to purchase tickets in advance.
