Weekend Planner: December 13, 2019

Family-fun events and activities in Philadelphia, the suburbs, South Jersey and Delaware for December 13-15, 2019

Top Picks for This Weekend

Parents Special: Tippler's Tour is the perfect experience to get into the holiday spirit in historic Philadelphia. A Red Coat soldier is your guide for a unique look at Philadelphia during the winter of 1777, as you seek the comfort of hearty snacks and warming drafts at four cozy pubs.

Celebrate one of the season’s most beloved tales during Polar Express Day atThe Franklin Institute in Philly Saturday. Families climb aboard an authentic locomotive for a guided storytelling experience, discover the science behind how trains move and the harmonics of sleigh bells, and watch screenings of the movie.

Still need to give your kid’s wish list to Santa? You’re in luck! The Big Guy takes a break from the North Pole to show up at several local spots this weekend. Share a meal with him at the Battleship New Jersey, Dave & Buster's Plymouth Meeting, Elmwood, Delaware Museum of Natural History, Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Market at DelVal or Sahara Sam's Oasis
