Happy holidays!

Macy's Philadelphia

We know it's a busy time of year, so here's a roundup of what you can do with that pre- and post-holiday "downtime" this week. (You know, when the kids start saying, "I'm boooored!")



Philly & the 'burbs

Have you seen the Macy's Light Show in Center City Philadelphia yet? It's a Philly holiday tradition! See it every hour on the hour (while you do some shopping!).

This weekend, the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia offers a free drop-in program, ArtSee Activities, where kids can make seasonal arts & crafts.

Have brunch with Santa and make an ornament at the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown.

Still have shopping to do this weekend? You can drop off your kids at The Party at Joe's Train Station in Feasterville on Saturday while you get it done!

South Jersey

Seats are still available for showings of Mr. Malcolm's Musical Christmas Carol this weekend at Children's Theatre at Broadway Theatre of Pitman.
