On November 17, the Fifth Avenue Association welcomes the public for a grand unveiling of “The Fifth Season” installation at The Pulitzer Fountain from 6:00-7:00pm. The unveiling will mark the beginning of the “Fifth Season,” a celebration of the holiday décor, music, and traditions that flourish with Fifth Avenue, the most globally renowned street for forging memories and partaking in the seasonal festivities.

The event will include remarks by Coco Mitchell and Laurent Claquin, a performance by The Brooklyn Youth Chorus, the countdown to the magnificent light show that will bring to life the fountain installation, and a first look at the toy installations that will line Fifth Avenue throughout the holidays, and which will allow tourists and patrons to donate directly to charitable partner City Harvest. Caroling is encouraged, and seasonal hot beverages by Angelina Paris will be available.

During the holiday season, Fifth Avenue will feature 32 hand-crafted-in-Brooklyn animal sculptures across from the Plaza Hotel, as well as 5,000 feet of lighting, a skating rink, and 24 handmade icebergs surrounding the Pulitzer Fountain. As usual, many of Fifth Avenue’s finest stores, including Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue, will have elaborate window displays.
