Kicking Off Christmas with the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall

By October 05, 2009

In New York City, the holiday season means seeing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular Show! I joined other blogging moms with their families for the official "Kick Off" with the Radio City Rockettes.

Moms and families all met at the Grand Foyer of Radio City Music Hall (RCMH) where while having a special breakfast, we heard from the Rockettes and Santa Claus about the special performances we can expect for this season Christmas Spectacular Show.

After finishing breakfast the families split into groups. Group 1 would go on a private tour of RCMH while group 2 would decorate holiday cupcakes with helpers from Magnolia Bakery. Since I was in group 1 Daniel and I went on the tour of RCMH. Woot!

During the tour I learned about the history of RCMH and the special little things people might not know. Our tour guide took us from the stage area, into the heart of the building and then into the lobby where we learned that the sun was the inspiration for the design of the drapes that covers the stage.

Then it was time for photos with Santa! I hoped that Daniel would pose nice with Santa but no way. When I put him on Santa’s lap, he took one look at Santa and immediately tried to get down. There was no putting him back so as you can see I held him for the official Santa photo. I think it came out nice anyway, don't you?

After our tour, cupcake decorating and Santa photo it was time to head outside to see the Radio City Rockettes and Santa, along with special guests, NY Giants kicker, Lawrence Tynes, and NY Jets players, Damien Woody and Dustin Keller stop traffic for the creation of NY’s longest kick line.

I didn't think all those people could fit into a kick line but amazingly they found a way! During the closing performance, as the confetti dropped everyone cheered, took photos and shared how excited we are to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular later on this year!
