Exactly 4 years ago, I stood in the same spot in complete awe over the breathtaking Saks Fifth Avenue’s Christmas lights display and only dreamt of living in NYC. 2014’s display is called ‘An Enchanted Experience’ featuring Rockette dancers helped create this lovely spectacle.
Notably, the show requires:
- 71,000 lights
- 11,000 linear feet of garlands, stretching 30 feet high
- 6 state-of-the-art 3D projectors with 26,000 lumens each
- 9000+ hours of work to produce
The entire show is an homage to the incredible legacy of Saks Fifth Avenue. Saks was born in the roaring ’20s when shopping was glamorous and everything felt possible. This year, the legendary Art Deco glamour from the earliest days of Saks Fifth Avenue returns in the form of a brilliant display of light and music. After the grand debut, the program will continue to run every day and night through the new year.
I can now happily say, I live in NYC and on to the next!
