Bryant Park


Winter Carnival Continues Through Saturday

There's still plenty of frosty fun in store at Bryant Park.

The Ice Castle, located on the Fountain Terrace at Bryant Park, continues to stand as a beacon through Saturday, as the third annual Winter Carnival at Bank of America Winter Village winds up its nine-day run. These last few days are jam-packed with free activities and amenities, so come to the park and celebrate winter. It’s great to get outside, and with this much going on, you won’t want to go back to work.

There are free skating and curling lessons on each remaining day, numerous Frozen Finger Juggling sessions with our resident Bryant Park Jugglers, and on Thursday, we offer two free sessions of Frozen Toes Yoga in the warm confines of Overlook in the Skating Pavilion.

On Friday night, The Rink hosts Sk80’s Night. From 7pm – 10pm, skaters will move to the sounds of the 1980’s while experiencing a major #flashbackfriday. There’ll be themed props for photo ops, and fun giveaways while supplies last. Admission is free, and regular Rink procedures apply. This is a great chance to revisit the days of big hair, spandex, and acid-washed jeans, so we encourage everyone to wear their 80’s gear.

Each day from 5pm – 10pm, the Outdoor Winter Brew House, located on The Deck, offers a variety of beers from Captain Lawrence Brewing Company, warming glühwein made with Cali Red from The Drop Wine Company, and classic sausage and bratwurst produced by  Brooklyn Cured. Come for Brew House Trivia at 6pm – 8pm on Wednesday and join in a battle of the wits, curated and hosted by TriviaNYC. Great prizes go to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams, which must be four people or fewer. The Brew House also hosts a live performance by Solomon Hicks ‘Band of Brothers’ on Saturday evening, 7pm – 8:30pm.

If you get chilly, warm up at the Bank of America Warming Lodge on the Upper Terrace. It’s toasty inside, with comfortable furniture, free charging stations, and a virtual snowball throw competition with fun prizes for the daily winner. Bank of America cardholders who show their card can get a free cup of hot chocolate.
