Treat your little ones to the magic of the holiday season this year!
There's no shortage of family-friendly holiday events in the city this season. From brunch with Santa, to spending the holidays at LEGOLAND, it's going to be near impossible to keep your family from feeling the holiday spirit!
Enjoy this festive, family-friendly celebration with everyone’s favorite Sesame Street® friends. The park is transformed into a one-of-a-kind Christmas wonderland with millions of twinkling lights, festive decorations and whirling rides including the new Cookie’s Monster Land featuring five rides, a three-story net climb, and a soft toddler play area. Guests will enjoy special Christmas shows, savory Christmas menus, super holiday shopping, and a visit with Santa in his Furry Workshop.
Watch the classic holiday tale come to life this season at the Merriam Theater! Through December 29, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical will be delighting audiences with the beloved tale of the man whose heart was three sizes too small. Narrated by Max the Dog and accompanied by an original score by Mel Marvin and Timothy Mason, watch this timeless classic through brand new eyes.
The magical snow globe has been stolen from Santa's sleigh! It's up to Rosie the Reindeer, with a little help from the audience, to solve this mystery before Christmas Eve! This fun twist on an old classic is a delight for all ages. Save money on this and many other holiday events with our Holiday Promotion made possible by PNC Arts Alive!
What better place to get into the holiday spirit than at Philly's brand new LEGOLAND Discovery Center?! Through December 30, you can don your best ugly Christmas Sweater and head to the Discovery Center in Plymouth Meeting for their Holiday Bricktacular. LEGO lovers of all ages will have a chance to meet LEGO Santa, participate in holiday-themed build activities, and even take part in a special North Pole Workshop. LEGOLAND will also be accepting donations for Toys for Tots at this time. Only brand new, unopened toys will be accepted.
Whether it be to workshop a wish list, or check their spot on the good list this year, there will be no shortage of opportunities for your little one to get in front the big guy this holiday season! Every weekend in December (until December 23), you and the whole family can head to the Laurel Hill Gardens in Chestnut Hill for Weekends with Santa.
