Might as well throw out the pumpkins and pack up those Halloween costumes because, if you haven't heard, Fall is over

First, the Rockefeller Center ice rink opened earlier this month—in balmy 80-degree weather. Seasonal shift? More like seasonal shove off a cliff.

And now, one of NYC's favorite holiday markets is opening as soon as next week. That's right, this Christmas-time classic opens its doors before Halloween.

The beloved Winter Village at Bryant Park and quintesstial "Christmas in NYC" experience returns on Saturday, October 28th.

Strolling through this winter wonderland is the ultimate activity to dive into the holiday season. Now in its 16th year, the market—also known as the Bank of America Winter Village—promises all sorts of Christmas-y delights.


There’s shopping galore from a variety of tiny, quaint pop-ups and endless tasty food options from a huge selection of vendors. On weekdays, the market opens at 10 a.m. (11 a.m. on weekends) and runs until 8 p.m. through January 2, 2018.

There are a few vendors we are particularly amped about...

And since you’re leaning into the season, lace up your skates and glide over to the totally admission-free ice skating rink. The space is open daily from 8 a.m. until 10 p.m. through March 4.

Don't miss the park's official grand opening on November 2. Plus, there's a ton of fun events and activities, like a Scavenger Hunt on November 14, upcoming College Skate Nights and, of course, the infamous Tree-Lighting Ceremony.

So, as you're still frantically sorting out Halloween party plans, consider going full holiday mode and breaking out the candy canes, instead. We won't tell.
