Philadelphia’s Top Holiday Traditions for 2017

Light shows, theatrical productions, ice skating and more

From classic light shows to timeless theatrical productions, holiday traditions abound in Philadelphia year after year.

Look no further than the Macy’s Christmas Light Show, which has dazzled generations of visitors and residents since 1956. Or the Pennsylvania Ballet’s production of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker, now celebrating its 49th year.

Throw in sparkling holiday lights, ice skating and a few newer attractions and experiences that could become traditions in the not-so-distant future, and you have the makings of a wonderful holiday season to be celebrated with friends and family.

Whether they’ve been around for 50 years or just a few, these are the biggest holiday traditions in Philadelphia.
