That’s right: The holidays officially kick off with the return of the awesome annual attractions at Dilworth Park — the ice rink, the cabin and the Wintergarden — which are set to welcome guests looking for an early, easy and safe embrace of the season. Additional holiday goings-on start in Bucks County, where the New Hope Railroad begins its semi-frequent trips to the North Pole (Saturday and Sunday).
Good news for fans of brews with a view: Terrace on Tap, the Independence Visitor Center’s elevated outdoor beer garden, has been so popular that it’s been extended through late November. This week, the open-air experience continues on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. (Pro tip: Make a reservation!)
And those looking for a dose of arts and culture can stroll past free outdoor exhibitions at The Navy Yard and Cherry Street Pier; settle in somewhere cozy for the all-virtual Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival; or laugh out loud at a show at Punch Line Philly, which resumes indoor comedy shows beginning Wednesday.
While you’re out and about this week and weekend, remember your mask. Masks are required in the five-county region in all indoor public spaces, as well as any outdoor space where social distancing isn’t possible. (The Phillie Phanatic sets a good example.) Another tip: Plan ahead, as many events recommend or require advanced tickets. Read more on visitphilly.com.
