Winter Fun Takes Over for the 1st Ever
 Sister Cities Park WINTERFEST!

The fountains at Sister Cities Park at 18th Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway have gone into hibernation and that means it’s time for the first-ever Sister Cities Park WINTERFEST! On Saturday, December 15, the Center City District will host this exciting FREE festival for families with children from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the park.
There will be a Holiday Treasure Hunt, Karaoke sing-a-long with Frosty the Snowman, plus seasonal arts and crafts. And there’s lots more!

Children will enjoy Story Art, presented by the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and the Free Library of Philadelphia; Snowflake Science, courtesy of the Franklin Institute; Cold Weather Creatures, presented by the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University; and Cookie Decorating at the Milk & Honey Café in the park.  The Philadelphia Parks & Recreation’s Young Performers Choir will offer a concert of  songs of the season.

To top it all off, Santa will be there! Mark your calendars now. Make sure to bring your camera, and get ready to enjoy exciting, kid-friendly WINTERFEST!
