The 125th Street Business Improvement District is hosting its annual Harlem Holiday Lights Event on Nov. 19th, on 125th street between Fifth and 12th avenues, commemorating its 25th year.

Fashion designer Dapper Dan will serve as grand marshal and help transform 125th Street into a sea of lights during the event. Young celebrity chef Cory Nieves of Mr. Cory’s Cookies will also be in the Children’s Village. The community is being treated to a jazz tent, a silent party and an ugly sweater contest.

This year is the 25th year that the 125th Street BID has decorated this business corridor during the holiday season.
