New York City's largest holiday festival, Winter's Eve, helped New Yorkers get into the holiday spirit. WABC-TV and the Lincoln Square Business Improvement District held the Tenth Annual Winter's Eve at Lincoln Square on Monday evening.

The celebration officially kicked off with a tree lighting ceremony. Once Joy Behar of "The View" did the honors of lighting the tree, there was free entertainment, food tastings and shopping for all to enjoy. There was also many fun activities for the whole family!

Musical performances and street festivities spread holiday cheer, and transformed the neighborhood into a winter wonderland. The festival sprawledl along Broadway from Time Warner Center to 68th Street. Performers, street musicians, jugglers, stilt-walkers and many others entertained those who attended. Featured performers included the afro-beat orchestra "Antibalas" and "The Flaming Idiots".

To see the tree visit Dante Park at Broadway and 63rd Street.

BY SUBWAY: Take the 1, A, B, C, or D train to 59th Street/Columbus Circle or the 1 train to 66th Street and Broadway.
