Daddy Al’s Tree Lights Up Rockefeller Center

Daddy Al’s Tree

Brings Christmas To

Rockefeller Center

The family of “Daddy Al” Dick, third from left, were some of the few people allowed into Rockefeller Center to see their Christmas Tree light up the night Manhattan sky tonight during the 88th annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting, which was aired this evening on NBC. The event went virtual this year, and included performances by Dolly Parton, the Goo Goo Dolls, Gwen Stefani and others. With him, from left, is daughter Paula, wife Susan, granddaughter Autumn Edison and friends Shyann Bowman and Kevin Scheller.  The tree will remain on view – with COVID regulations, including mask requirements, digital queues and time limitations – until early January 2021, after which it will be milled for lumber and donated to Habitat for Humanity. Though this is the second Oneonta tree to grace the famed plaza, rumor has it that there could be a third such spruce eyed in the area to become the coveted Christmas centerpiece.
