The Fifth Avenue Association has announced “Fifth Avenue for All,” a new open streets program that will close the iconic Fifth Avenue retail corridor (between 48th and 57th Streets) to vehicular traffic on Sunday December 4, 11, and 18 from 12 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. This program will allow visitors a better way to enjoy the avenue’s many iconic holiday windows and celebrate the season with food kiosks, seating areas and live music.

The Fifth Avenue Association will host an opening ceremony on December 4 at 12 p.m. at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 50th Street featuring special guests and a marching band performance by Brooklyn United, a community-based organization that serves New York City youth. There will be additional musical performances on December 11 and 18.

In addition, the popular oversized lit toys are also making a return to Fifth Avenue through January 7, with a special community giveback this season. QR codes on each toy will offer the opportunity to donate directly to Food Bank For New York City, New York’s largest hunger-relief organization and Fifth Avenue’s charitable partner this season.
