An overview of the holiday activities planned for the city, from the Philadelphia Marathon Weekend, through the annual 6ABC Thanksgiving Day Parade, the annual holiday tree lighting and Holiday village, to the Rothman River Rink, the beer gardens, Boathouse Row’s menorah and Kwanza celebrations, Franklin Square’s Electrical Spectacle and neighborhood events, through New Year’s fireworks and the 118 Mummers day Parade.  We also recapped the city’s summer activities with an appreciation of the livability of the city with its diversity, growing millennial  population and infrastructure improvements, and the importance of these to residents, tourists and business planners.

New! Gift Drive at the Tree Lighting at City Hall at North Broad Street (Friday, November 24, donate from 4 – 8 p.m.)
Bring an unwrapped gift to the tree lighting on Friday, November 24 and help a child in need. Hats, scarves, ear muffs, gloves, mittens, journals, art and craft supplies, and board games are great for everyone. Older youth also like gift cards, ear buds, and toiletry bags. The Department of Human Services will accept gifts at the “Gift Donation Tent” at City Hall at North Broad Street from 4 to 8 p.m.
