Christmas in America is synonymous with the spectacular holiday décor displayed in New York City, including Rockefeller Center, Macy’s, Cartier, and Radio City Musical Hall. American Christmas, the company that decorates those iconic buildings and many more, is opening the doors to their warehouse at 30 Warren Place in Mt. Vernon to the public for the first time starting November 4.
One hundred percent of ticket sales will support three area nonprofit organizations – The Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club, North East STEM Academy, and Youth Community Outreach Program of Mt. Vernon.
American Christmas invites you to immerse yourself in their 10,000 sq. ft holiday walk-about tour. Start with a stroll through several Dickens interactive vignettes, visit the elves and have a seat on Santa’s chair, and take photos with over 50 mesmerizing animatronics and lighted scenes, all under an umbrella of 50,000 twinkling lights!
Then head over to the “real workshop” for a sneak peek behind the scenes to see some of New York’s most iconic Christmas displays being assembled. The tour culminates with a stop in the charming Christmas in America Shop, where you’ll discover magnificent ornaments to add to your collection, and be sure to stop into the Pop-Up Outlet, where you can purchase vintage pieces used in displays all over the country from years past.
