1. Pinkmas at the Museum of Ice Cream - 13 multi-sensory installations will burst with snowflakes, candy canes, pink trees, interactive moments, from crafting ornaments and decorating the MOIC trees, to tasting sweet treats that celebrate the season’s festive spirit. You can also hunt for the candy cane sprinkle hidden in MOIC NYC’s world-famous Sprinkle Pool for a special surprise and sing along to carols. Guests are encouraged to bring in new toys for Toys For Tots in exchange for a scoop of ice cream and to come dressed in their pinkest Pinkmas attire.
