On the 4th day before Winter Break, The Fordian gives to you: 4 holiday activities to do over break.

  1. Miracle on 13th Street

As a tradition for 13th street dwellers, the Christmas light display in South Philadelphia is a sight you must go to see this holiday season. The homes lining the street are decked out with colorful lights and decorations each year to catch your eye. If you’re in the city, take a walk through!

      2. Macy’s Christmas Light Show

The Christmas light show at Macy’s in center city is one of Philadelphia’s most popular sights during the holiday season. The free presentation showcases 35,400 LED lights with a narrated story and is sure to impress. Run every two hours, the show is easily accessible and a perfect time to warm up after walking around center city. Be sure to stop in if you are around.

      3. Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest

Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest transforms Penn’s Landing into a winterized riverfront park. Overlooking the Delaware River, the attraction has a lodge, a winter garden with holiday trees, a heated tent, fire pits and plenty of cozy seating. While ice skating requires a small admission fee, it’s free of charge to come hang out on the grounds and take in the sights of Winterfest.

       4. Peddler’s Village

Throughout the holiday shopping season, visitors to Peddler’s Village can check out the annual gingerbread competition and display. On the weekends, Peddler’s hosts visits with Santa at Giggleberry Fair and other special events. This is a perfect, winter activity to do with any little children in your life.

 

Have some fun this winter break, Fords!
