Christmas Tree Lighting 2019

December 5, 2019

Annual Christmas Tree Lighting at the Singing Fountain

Thursday, Dec 5th
5:00pm to 7:00pm
The Singing Fountain at Tasker Street and EPA 

East Passyunk Avenue BID and Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation invite you to kick off the holidays at the Annual East Passyunk Christmas Tree Lighting.

Come out with neighbors and friends for an evening filled with holiday music from Alphabet Academy Child Care, Andrew Jackson School HOME rock band, and more!

CBS 3 Philly Meteorologist Lauren Casey joins us as Master of Ceremonies. Count down with her as she helps light the official Christmas Tree around the Singing Fountain. Bring an unwrapped new toy for Lauren to bring back to CBS 3 and The CW Philly 57 for their annual Toy Fest holiday drive. You can also donate $10 to the cause by texting JOY to 41444. Message and data rates apply.

Santa Claus will help spread holiday cheer and be on hand to take photos with the children. 

New this year, look for an East Passyunk Pop-Up Holiday Market on the 1500 block, just north of the Singing Fountain. From 4:00pm to 8:00pm a variety of East Passyunk businesses will have holiday specials on-site, and a number of restaurants will have food and beverages too. For your holiday shopping needs, look for select shops along the Avenue to be open late to kick off the holiday shopping season.

East Passyunk's Christmas Tree Lighting Party is free and open to everyone. Deck the Avenue and come kick-off a whole month of merrymaking in South Philadelphia!
