Saks Fifth Avenue turned their flagship store on Fifth Ave into a Winter Palace. This year’s Light Show is spectacular! It is a return to traditional physical lights unlike the previous year’s HD projections. Synchronized to Carol of the Bells, the Light Show plays every 10 minutes from 4:35PM – 11:35PM and is visible on Fifth Ave from W 50th St to W 52nd St.
Saks’ window display is less impressive, creating icy versions of famous world landmarks to go with the Winter Palace theme.

Saks Fifth Avenue is located on Fifth Avenue between E 49th St and E 50th St. The Light Show is on the exterior of the Saks building facing West. The congestion in this area is very high due to the crowd for the Light Show and the Tree at Rockefeller Center.
