Long Weekend Picks: Christmas And Hanukkah Celebrations, Winter Beer Fest At World Cafe Live And More

Your guide to this weekend in Philadelphia...

Over the next few days, the holiday celebrations in Philadelphia reach their height as Christmas and Hanukkah celebrations hit the city.

Saturday marks the final day for two well-loved holiday markets — Christmas Village and the Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market, which are both located at City Hall. Get any last-minute shopping done by paying a visit to these local pop-up shops.

There are also a number of non-holiday events happening in the city this weekend, including a Winter Beer Festival at World Cafe Live, concerts and ice skating at Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest.

We’ll be out celebrating the holiday through Monday, but be sure to follow Uwishunu on Instagram and Twitter for updates throughout the weekend.
