The Statement:
We regret that we are unable to the Christmas Spectacular this season due to the increasing challenges from the pandemic.

We had hoped we could make it throught the season and are honored to have hosted hundreds of thousands of fans at more than 100 shows over the last seven weeks. We have loved bringing back this cherished tradition that helps usher in the holiday season in New York City and look forward to welcoming fans back to Radio City Music Hall in 2022.

All tickets for impacted shows will be fully refunded at the point of purchase.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: While this update saddens me it doesn’t really surprise me because just up a few avenues, a number of the most popular Broadway performances were going “dark” for the evening or for several days based on reported cases of the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus. When you hear across the wire that “Hamilton”, “Harry Potter”, “Wicked”, Tina”, “Jagged Little Pill” and more are shutting it down for a brief bit you are reminded that we surely have a ways to go in this fight. I do some work with safety protocols on sets and in rehearsal spaces as well and cannot emphasize enough that you must be smart with yourself and your health. This isn’t a joke, hoax or mind-control of any kind. Please be safe out there my friends, I haven’t seen so many of you in person in too long a time and I look forward to doing that again. Right now I will wave from a distance and hand out non-touching high fives from afar while masked up. I’m not kidding. I am sad that I wasn’t able to witness the Christmas Spectacular this season either as I have not gone in quite some time. By the way, I will be editing the calendar to reflect the cancelled dates. I do NOT list every single day performances just a single one to keep it easy to observe. See you next time.

The Press Release:
Since 1983, PHOTOPLUS has brought the photography and video communities together each fall to connect, share ideas, and experience the newest imaging technology. Our goal is always to support, inspire and celebrate this remarkable community. That said, it is with great difficulty that we announce that we have decided to cancel our in-person event at the Javits Convention Center in New York, NY, scheduled for September 30-October 2, 2021.

The cancellation of the live event is due to developments regarding the ongoing progression of the COVID-19 pandemic and related company-imposed travel restrictions affecting customers’ ability to gather in New York for PHOTOPLUS. While the decision to cancel is a disappointing one, we recognize the extreme demands that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on establishments, and particularly small businesses, in this industry..

Organizers Cancel The 2021 Coney Island Mermaid Parade

The Statement:
Dear Friends of Coney Island USA:

It is with sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2021 Mermaid Parade.

When we set the September date, we hoped that the Parade, the largest art parade in the nation and a point of civic pride for Coney Island, would represent a return to normalcy. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is not finished with us quite yet.

The Parade draws hundreds of thousands to Coney Island every year, including large numbers of children, many crowding onto mass transit for the ride out to Stillwell Avenue. It is the centerpiece of the CIUSA calendar, and we are very proud of the positive impact that the Parade has on our Coney Island community. However, the risks to our sponsors, patrons, community, and our wonderful staff—who have risen to every challenge—were too much to bear.
