This Saturday and Sunday, December 10-11, Citizens Bank Park is getting all dressed up for the holidays.

On Saturday, Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel and pitcher Vance Worley will host a holiday tree and ballpark lighting ceremony complete with carolers, Phillies Ballgirls, Phoebe and the Phillie Phanatic as Phanta Claus.

In addition, on both Saturday and Sunday, the Phillies will host their annual Holiday Sale & Food Drive at the Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park.

Bring canned food items to benefit Philabundance, and get ready to shop for awesome holiday gifts, including Phillies Authentics sales with game-used and other unique items, holiday-themed name and number t-shirts, Phillies holiday decorations and more.

Both days will feature free photos with Phanta Claus (BYO camera) and broadcaster meet and greets. Fans will also have an opportunity to help paint The Phillies Mural on Saturday.

Parking is free in Lot S, located off Pattison Avenue between Broad Street and Citizens Bank Way.
