Published on : Thursday, December 24, 2015

unnamed (49)The holidays are all about tradition, especially in Philadelphia where each year generations of visitors gather at Macy’s for the Christmas Light Show, snap memory-making photos of Longwood Gardens’ elaborate displays and oooh-and-aaaah at the SugarHouse New Year’s Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront, which will be displayed on screens around town atmidnight.This year, the Mummers Parade, Philadelphia’s oldest and proudly quirkiest New Year’s Day tradition, gets a new look with the addition of a new division—the first since 2008. Joining the Comic, Fancy, Wench, String Band and Fancy Brigades on the march along Broad Street will be the Philadelphia division, which includes marchers from the city’s numerous LGBT, ethnic and immigrant groups.

 

The Philly Phlash Downtown Bus Loop makes it easy to get around to many of Center City’s holiday attractions. Offering daily service from November 27 through January 3, the purple tourist bus runs every 15 minutes, making stops at 22 locations in between Penn’s Landing and the Please Touch Museum®.
