      Working on a separate update right now but the tree lighting time is in the schedule above. The exact location is 42nd/Alaska – the tree is the same one that’s used every year in Junction Plaza Park, the stage will be a bit further west in the 42nd/Alaska intersection (I just got a map). Will link the update here when it’s ready.

    Thanks, as always for the information. Does the Night Market start at 4:00 or earlier?

Sorry, comment time is over.
