Making the Most of the Holiday Season in Philadelphia

9 Flares 9 Flares ×

Untitled1The holiday season is a magical time of year. Philadelphia is one of the most enchanting places to spend this time of year because of our city’s many yuletide traditions. 

The Wanamaker Lightshow at Macy’s is a must-see. Dating back to 1956, the show has brought thousands to the city. More than 100,000 LED lights are employed to create a touching holiday story voiced by Julie Andrews and accompanied by music from the Wanamaker organ. 

Don’t forget to swing by the Dickens Christmas Village. Located on the third floor of Macy’s, you can watch Charles Dickens’ timeless story, “A Christmas Carol” come to life as more than 100 figurines reenact the most memorable pieces of the story.

Christmas Village brings the German tradition of the Christmas Market to LOVE Park in Center City. Enjoy plenty of European food, international trinkets, jewelry and other seasonal treats. 

At the Comcast Center, visitors can see the Comcast Holiday Spectacular which features original holiday music, world-class ice skaters and performances from the Philadelphia Ballet. The enormous visual presentation happens in the Comcast Center’s high-tech lobby—and don’t forget to stay for the surprise ending!

George Belanchine’s “The Nutcracker” returns to the Academy of Music throughout this month. As always, The Philadelphia Ballet performs the holiday classic with poise and expertise. Attend a show as some of Philadelphia’s most talented dancers recreate the world of sugar plum fairies on stage.

As always, you can use our Parking locator to find the best and safest places to leave your vehicle while you enjoy being out and about in Philadelphia.
