Best of December: 22 Top Things To Do in Philly with Kids
Christmas lights and holiday activities are back this December, and that's just the beginning of things to do in Philadelphia as the holiday season kicks into high gear. Don't miss our favorite kid-friendly events and activities in Philly this month.
Philadelphia is not just a city of delicious cuisine and crushing culture; it's also home to some truly spectacular holiday light displays! Take your family out for an evening stroll through the neighborhoods this month, from the The Miracle on South 13th Street to the Smedley Street Christmas Lights Spectacular, to the delightfully over-the-top West Chester Griswolds in the 'burbs. Head down to the nearest holiday parade, like the Visit Philadelphia Holiday Parade where you can watch balloons and bands marching to City Hall. Glide on over to Flight on Ice, Delco's pop-up ice rink, or stop by for a skate at Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest. Don't miss the epic Frozen-Encanto mash-up when Disney on Ice descends on Philly at the end of the month, and before we say goodbye to 2022 forever, grab the kids and enjoy fireworks at Sesame Place to send the year off with a bang.
