On Monday, November 20, Disney and Saks Fifth Avenue revealed the iconic Saks Fifth Avenue Holiday Windows and Light Show, kicking off a magical holiday season in New York City.
This year’s theme celebrates the 80th anniversary of Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” and Saks Fifth Avenue transformed all fourteen of its Fifth Avenue-facing windows into scenes from the classic film. The vignettes, presented by Mastercard, show Snow White dancing with her woodland creature friends, the seven dwarfs returning home after a day of Heigh-Ho!-ing in the diamond caves, and the Wicked Queen with the infamous red apple.
See highlights from the window unveiling and light show, along with photos below.
