Experience the magic of the holiday season as so many generations of Atlantans have with the lighting of the Macy’s Great Tree. The holiday tradition continues this year as Channel 2’s Jovita Moore and Craig Lucie host the Great Tree Lighting LIVE from Macy’s at Lenox Square on a new night, Sunday November 22nd at 7 p.m. This used to happen on Thanksgiving night but they changed the date, however, there will still be the same level of awesome family fun!
Check out Mamalicious Maria’s Tips on attending the Macy’s Great Tree Lighting:
- Go early. It will be packed. There is an area directly behind the roped-off VIP area where you can set up chairs. It’s first come, first served though so get there EARLY.
- Don’t drive. Can you Uber? Take the train? Walk? If you have any opportunity to get down to the Tree Lighting without a car, take it. Parking will be crazy. If you do drive, go hours early and walk around the mall or have lunch/dinner to snag a spot before most of the crowd gets there.
- Obey the parking signs. Police and private security will make sure you are not parking illegal. So just don’t do it. You can’t park in the Shoppes Around Lenox unless you buy something. Since there are usually spots over there though, think about doing some shopping in Crate & Barrel or American Apparel or another boutique so you can legally park there. (You do actually have to buy something though.)
- The pre-show starts at 6pm. While the Tree Lighting will air on WSB-TV starting at 7pm, don’t get down there late. You’ll miss some of the great performances!
