PHILADELPHIA, PA (November 29,2018)--Holiday celebrations begin down on the Waterfront this Friday and continue all the way through the SugarHouse New Year's Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront.

This weekend, bring the whole family out for the FREE Holiday Tree Lighting Powered by PECO at Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest with headliners Bianca Ryan, the first winner of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, and Jackie Verna, top 10 finalist on Season 14 of NBC’s The Voice.
