A free holiday light show dubbed Kaleidoscope returns to the beautifully restored main concourse of Grand Central Terminal on Saturday, December 1 (through January 1, 2008). Brilliant images of fairytale landscapes and iconic New York scenes are projected onto the walls during the seven-minute show, performed daily at the top and bottom of the hour, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

In adjacent Vanderbilt Hall, tourists and harried commuters pause to browse at the Holiday Fair, where 76 vendors sell jewelry, scarves, and quirky gifts. You can get a glimpse of Grand Central during the holidays by clicking on our slide show.
