On December 15 and 16, celebrate Christmas at Citizens Bank Park.
The stadium will be hosting a tree lighting, food drive, Majestic Clubhouse sales, meet and greets with broadcast personalities, pictures with the Phillie Phanatic as Phanta Claus and more.
Spread the holiday cheer by donating items to the food drive which will benefit We Feed the Homeless Philly and Philabundance.
The main event is the annual ballpark and tree lighting, set for Saturday, December 15. At 5 p.m., Phillies manager Charlie Manuel and Phanta Claus (the Phanatic — haven’t you missed him since the summer?) will light up the Christmas tree and the ballpark.
As lights are gloriously illuminated all around the park, enjoy holiday tunes from carolers and a chance to mingle with the Phillies ballgirls.
Before the tree lighting event, get some Christmas shopping done at the Majestic Clubhouse store where many items will be discounted over the weekend. Think 25% off all outerwear on Saturday and 25% off all PINK by Victoria’s Secret merchandise on Sunday.
Bring your camera for pictures with Phanta Claus all weekend long! From 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, if you are one of the first 500 fans, get the chance take holiday photos on the same field where Chase Utley and Ron Howard play. Pretty cool.
The full schedule of events can be found online.
