A prelit Christmas tree lit up the night on 12/16 in Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn, NY. Olympic figure skating fans witnessed a magical night as Johnny Weir, a three time US National Champion and two time Olympian, joined Holiday Dreams on Ice to create an unforgettable Olympic figure skating event.

Lighting of the Christmas Tree
While Johnny Weir was the star of the show with his unique routine and skating style, the finale featured a less traditional star: a 14' Douglas Fir Christmas tree. The grand finale culminated with the lighting of the Douglas Fir tree, its bright, clear lights welcoming the Christmas season and delighting the audience.
