Bryant Park is Bringing Back ‘Ice Bumper Cars’ in FrostFest


The Bryant Park Winter Village is an iconic, European-Inspired spot to spend the holidays for both locals and tourists.  With a wide assortment of vendors and decorations, everything is Instagram worthy.  Visitors from Thanksgiving to New Years can expect long lines, huge crowds and pricey food.  For you outta-towners, Bryant Park is located in Manhattans’ Fashion District near Times Square.

Last year, Bryant Park ‘bumped’ up their Winter Village to the next level by introducing Ice Bumper Cars on their ice rink.  The bumper cars are all part of #FrostFest which runs through the end of January into early February.  This coincides with the time of year when people chose to visit sunny Florida over New York greys. January 2019 was the first appearance of the ice bumper cars and it was a great success.  This year’s schedule has not yet been released, but is expected later this week.
