Winter classics and inventive dining deals kick off a new week and a new year in Greater Philadelphia.

Though there are no New Year’s Eve fireworks at Penn’s Landing and no Mummers Parade on Broad Street this year (per the City of Philadelphia), there are still plenty of ways to safely enjoy the last week of 2020 and the beginning of 2021.

Miracle on South 13th StreetWinter on Broad StreetDeck the Hall Holiday Lights and other top holiday attractions wrap up for the season this week, as does the pop-up Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market at City Hall.

The socially distant winter fun continues into 2021 at Blue Cross RiverRink WinterfestWinter at Dilworth Park and Winter in Franklin Square. Plus, there’s still time for the Elf on the Stealth scavenger hunt through Peddler’s Village.

And, last but not least: New Year’s Eve. Virtual festivities come courtesy of Franklin Square and the Please Touch Museum, while takeout or delivery options include a multi-course meal to enjoy at home (with a side of a board game, if you prefer), a traditional Pennsylvania feast for two and more.
