The Christmas Light Show at Macy’s Center City is an annual, old school Philly tradition that has kept the floors of Macy’s in the historic Wanamaker Building filled with spectators since 1955. Using over 100,000 LED lights and the sounds of the legendary Wanamaker organ in the heart of the older Wanamaker’s building, the Grand Court atrium lights up with holiday stories and songs told through lights, music and narration.  

And, take your kids through Dickens Village after the light show. For over 20 years, the third floor of Macy’s is transformed into “Dickens Village” for the holiday season. The 6,000-square-foot Village brings Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol to life with more than 100 fully animated figures reenacting 26 of the story’s most memorable moments.

Insider tip: This is free.
