There is no excuse to be a bah-humbug this December weekend. The Delaware Valley is bursting with holiday fun for Philly families. From potato pancakes and gingerbread to parades and winter celebrations, much holiday excitement awaits.

Start out by eating brunch with Santa at the zoo, on a battleship or cruise ship, at a country club, or at a museum. Get creative and make holiday gifts for loved ones at Engage Studio, Tyler Arboretum, or Main Line Art Center. Once the sun sets, bundle up to watch Downingtown Good Neighbor Christmas parade, wander through Schuylkill Canal Park to admire the glowing Holiday Luminaria, or head to the water to see the Seaport Parade of Lights.
