The Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) adds:
Tis the season, Roosevelt Island!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! You may have spotted decorative
garland, twinkle lights, a sleigh, giant gift boxes, and more as Roosevelt
Island has entered the holiday season. To celebrate the season, since we’re
unable to return to full holiday activities at this time, we hope you’ll
join us for the Roosevelt Island Holiday Trail on Friday, December 3rd, from
5 PM – 7 PM!
The Roosevelt Island Holiday Trail is a festive and fun collection of stops
where RIOC, in partnership with community groups, businesses, and partners
will offer holiday-themed music, treats, information, and more!
The Holiday Trail will take revelers to various island locations, from the
NYC Ferry landing to the RISA Holiday Village at Good Shepherd Plaza (543
Main St.). This scaled-down free event will be a festive day of fun and a
chance for all to show off your ugliest Christmas sweaters or best holiday
regalia, as the tree will be turned on at 7 PM on the Meditation
We hope you can come out and celebrate the holiday spirit!
