New York City has its annual Christmas lights show.
But not for everyone.
It’s the night when hundreds of thousands of people gather on a night when most people stay home, but a few choose to take to the streets.
It will be the second annual event in the US after one in New York in the late 1980s.
It started in 1993, when the city held the world’s first public candle lighting.
Now, it’s a big draw.
In New York, hundreds of millions of people are expected to turn out for the event.
On the day before Christmas, there are some changes.
There will be no pyrotechnics, instead people will be allowed to light their own candles and decorate them.
The lights will be dimmed down a little.
And they will be only at night, at dusk.
That’s not good news for those hoping to get to the event on Christmas Eve, when people in the city are expected at least another half hour of the show.
“We’re trying to figure out how to make it a night that’s safe for the kids,” said Stephanie Dombrowski, a public relations director for the New York Public Library.
It also means there won’t be a fireworks display as many had hoped.
The city is also planning to close off the street for a week to reduce traffic and prevent an accident like the one in Dallas.ABC News’ Michael Schumacher, Stephanie Dominguez and Michael D’Antonio contributed to this report.
