The famed Radio City Rockettes will be sending representatives to two Long Island libraries on Thursday and Friday to meet the public. Two Rockettes will visit the Huntington Public Library at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 13, and another two will visit the Manhasset Public Library at 4 p.m. Friday. They’ll lead a craft activity for kids, who will decorate jars filled with lights. They’ll also take photos with the children.
Every September before their "Christmas Spectacular" season begins, the Rockettes visit various tri-state area towns to engage with local communities and meet local fans and families. The Rockettes will be in one of their holiday costumes but won’t be performing. The Rockettes who will visit the Manhasset Public Library are both from Long Island. Kristen Grace Smith is from Malverne and Tara Dunleavy Tubridy lives in Oceanside.
The library events are free and open to the public. No preregistration is required. The “Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes” will run from Nov. 9, 2018 to Jan. 1, 2019 at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan.
