The Comcast Holiday Spectacular
A 15-minute holiday spectacle at the Comcast Center
November 22, 2012 – January 1, 2013
The Holiday Spectacular
A holiday spectacle unlike any other returns for its fifth year. Shown on the state-of-the-art Comcast Experience Video Wall at The Comcast Center, the Holiday Spectacular is filled with sights and sounds of the season. Since its debut in 2008, more than 500,000 people have experienced the joyful holiday show in the Comcast Center lobby.
From Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day, the Spectacular will run from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. (except 5 p.m. on weekdays) every hour on the hour, seven days per week, through New Year’s Day. The show lasts approximately 15 minutes.
This year’s Holiday Spectacular kicks-off with the “Snowman Symphony” and includes scenes from The Nutcracker performed by the Pennsylvania Ballet, a snowy sleigh ride through the Pennsylvania Countryside, a 1940s swing-style dance to “Jingle Bell Rock” featuring Broadway stars, the sounds of a 64-piece orchestra and much more.
Children of all ages can get a temporary “Snowman Symphony” tattoo good for a one-time treat at the Termini Brothers Bakery or Di Bruno Bros. downstairs in The Market & Shops at the Comcast Center.
