The festive, family friendly holiday celebration will transform the station into a winter wonderland featuring thousands of glistening lights surrounding a towering white Christmas tree, a “Cocoa Bar” with Elftenders, a Holiday Craft Zone for ginger bread house and ornament decoration, a Kids Zone with a Reindeer Toss and Snowball Slam, and selfies with Santa and the Snow Queen.
The famed Confetti Project (@the_confetti_project) will make an appearance with an immersive pop-up studio offering guest a unique opportunity to celebrate the season with their own personal photos session as they are doused in confetti.
The event begins at 6:30 p.m. with the tree lighting slated for 7:15 p.m.
