The Holidays in Philadelphia

The holidays are a magical time in Philadelphia.

As the temperature dips and the year nears its end, the city is aglow with shimmering lights, festive decorations and seasonal cheer. Visitors and locals alike love watching dazzling light shows at spots like Franklin Square, the Comcast Center and Macy’s Philadelphia.

Markets like Christmas Village and Made in Philadelphia are the perfect places to check names off of holiday shopping lists. And seasonal attractions like BlueCross RiverRink Winterfest and the Dilworth Park Wintergarden offer wintry oases right in Center City.

And what's the perfect end to the most wonderful time of the year? The always incredible SugarHouse New Year’s Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront along the Delaware River, featuring two spectacular shows on December 31.
