Atlanta is the Place to be for Holiday Fun
Make figure-eights at an outdoor ice rink, sing along with music performances, share your wish list with Santa and dance under the twinkling light displays this holiday season.
Radio City Christmas Spectacular
Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre
Nov. 7-23. Showtimes vary.
A holiday visit to Manhattan to see the world-famous Rockettes perform at the classic Radio City Music Hall is certainly a trip to remember. Atlantans, however, do not have to travel all the way to the Big Apple to see The Rockettes’ high-kicks in person. These athletic ladies are traveling to Atlanta and will perform classic numbers, such as the “Parade of Wooden Soldiers” and “The Living Nativity”, as well as new numbers with dazzling costumes, new sets and a 50-foot LED screen for 2013. 2800 Cobb Galleria Pkwy., Atlanta. 770-916-2800. $27-125.
