On November 24,2014 Byron went to his first Radio City Music Hall Show - the Winter spectacular.
Denise was sick so Shami went with Byron and Dad.


Byron liked the A train.  Here he is with Shami.
The show had lots of fun charactors
As always the march of the wooden soldiers.
After the show a quick stop at the FDNY fire department store for a picture
After the show we went to Rockefeller Center and watched the skaters.
Byron likes the street musicians.  He always gives them a dollar.
