Caravan of Lights

Each holiday season, 125th Street is decorated with what seems like an endless amount of lights. Residents of Harlem and visitors from other New York City neighborhoods can stroll down 125th Street to enjoy the lights while doing their holiday shopping and supporting businesses in Harlem.

What is the Caravan of Lights

The Caravan of Lights, featuring lighted floats from community organizations and sponsors will travel on 125th Street and throughout Harlem spreading holiday cheer.

Where can I see the Caravan of Lights

The Caravan of Lights departs from 125th Street and Broadway at 6:00 pm ET on Tuesday, November 22, 2022 and continues down the corridor to Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd, where it will continue traversing around the Harlem community concluding at Morningside Avenue.

How can I participate in Caravan of Lights

Business owners and community residents along the route will add to the festive atmosphere of the evening, by decorating their properties in appropriate holiday decor. The Caravan’s will fill the route with music and holiday cheer that is infectious.
