The Deck the Hall Light Show presented by Independence Blue Cross will once again illuminate Dilworth Park this holiday season. Produced with support from the Center City District and 6abc, this annual display of lights and music will premiere on Monday, November 25 and run through January 1, 2020.
Since the Center City District (CCD) began gathering data in 2001 on downtown establishments that provided outdoor seating, the number of seats has steadily increased. That trend has continued in 2019, with locations throughout Center City providing a record number of 6,969 seats, a 5% increase from 6,631 in 2018.
On September 28th, businesses in downtown Philadelphia will open their doors for a day of shopping, special promotions and VIP experiences for the second annual, Shop Center City Saturday, an all-day event for shoppers to explore and discover all that Center City’s retail and dining scenes has to offer.
