Popular Holiday Spectacular Relocating From Pennsylvania Suburbs To South Philadelphia
A very popular holiday spectacular is relocating from Pennsylvania suburbs to South Philadelphia. Tinseltown Holiday Spectacular is relocating from the PA suburbs to the South Philly for the upcoming holiday season. It first opened in 2021 and has been held at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center fairgrounds in Oaks, Montgomery County. It’s obviously very family-friendly with lots of holiday activities such as an outdoor market and light installation. It was a big deal last year when they added an ice skating ring and ice slide! Even Gritty showed up to make a splash.
“The City of Philadelphia is thrilled to welcome Tinseltown to the City, and in doing so spread the magic of the holiday season down Broad Street to FDR Park,” City Representative Sheila Hess said in a release. The new Tinseltown will feature festive food and drinks, holiday vendors, visits from Santa Claus and light sculptures powered by more than 1 million light bulbs. Some of the twinkling displays include a 60-foot-long light tunnel, Santa’s sleigh, the Liberty Bell and sculptures paying homage to Philly sports teams. Which makes sense since FDR Park is literally next to Novacare complex as well as all the sports arenas. FDR park has been making noise recently when they just announced a massive renovation and will now be home to the biggest swing set in America!
The popular holiday spectacular relocating from Pennsylvania suburbs to South Philadelphia will definitely draw some unhappy customers now that they have to sit in traffic on 76. Can’t say we blame them. Maybe they an offer helicopter rides to and from. See below for opening dates and ticket info. It’s kind of perfect they announced it during Christmas in July. Gives us something to look forward to during this heat wave!
