All Aboard! Now Leaving the Station for Holiday Fun and Adventure...

The Railroad is part of the museum's huge Brandywine Christmas Celebration.  Everyday the winding journey features nearly 1,000 pieces, from locomotives, passenger and freight trains, to clockwork sets and trolleys that pass through a small town, a farm, factories and even a carnival.

Listen and you can almost here the engines whisper...YouGottaGo...YouGottaGo...YouGottaGo...


BREAKFAST WITH TRAINS - Sat, Dec 12th - 8:30 to 10am
This behind-the-scenes visit shows how the extensive railroad layout, one of the world’s largest, is created and what it takes to keep everything running. It includes a private tour of the trains, special activities for the youngest fans, and a continental breakfast in the museum’s café.

Children receive a Railroad souvenir; ages 3 and older accompanied by an adult are welcome.
RESERVE ONLINE or by calling 610.388.8326.

THE POLAR EXPRESS Read Aloud Pajama Night -- Thursday, Dec 3rd -- 7 to 8 p.m.
Children are invited to wear their pajamas as they delight in the tale of The Polar Express and enjoy hot chocolate and cookies. Tickets are very limited; reserve online or by calling 610.388.8326.

If this event sells out -- why not start a new family tradition! Whip up a batch of hot chocolate, insist the entire family get into their PJs and watch the movie at home...maybe even let each child open one present (a little toy train of course!)

NOW OPEN -- Longwood's Garden Railway Returns!

Four locomotives rumble through the G-scale model train display, which features a new bridge, more tracks, and a beautifully landscaped display.

There's something magical about trains. Real trains - toy trains - and especially the colorful trains that circle millions of family Christmas trees in homes around the world.  Whether you have your own train set or not, this is a rare and fabulous exhibit, so grab the kids and 'make tracks' for Longwood's Annual Garden Railway, open regular Garden hours, weather permitting, now through January 10th.


DID YOU KNOW: The earliest toy trains date from the 19th century and were often made of cast iron. Motorized units running on track soon followed, powered by a steam or clockwork engine. With expanding residential electricity in the early 20th century, electric trains gained popularity and grew in sophistication, with lighting, the ability to change direction, whistle, and smoke. Today's toy trains boast digitized sound effects and a TV camera in the front of the engine so that, when hooked up to a TV or Computer screen, sit hows an image similar to that of a real (smaller size) railroad!



ONE DAY & ONE SHOW ONLY - December 4th

The Tower Theater presents the renowned Moscow Ballet Company, performing the Great Russian Nutcracker

New York Times raves “Knock-Out!”  
Los Angeles Times, “Bravura expertise!” 
Calgary Herald,”Wonderful..dazzling.”

Touring more than 75 American cities each year, The Moscow Ballet Company brings 40 world class ballet dancers - 10 foot tall puppets - life-sized dolls and shimmering backdrops to Upper Darby's famous Tower Theater in it's holiday classic, THE GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER.

Over the holidays there's only one thing that can bring families together for 2 hours or so, without anyone saying a word...  In my house, it's called THE NUTCRACKER!  

And frankly, in light of recent events, the Moscow Dance Company's production hits a little closer to home & heart for many of us.

This production is known for its dedication to world peace.
Act II (the “Land of Peace and Harmony”) features a rose shooting cannon and a stunning “Dove of Peace” with a 20’ wingspan. Simply stunning to see...and in the light of recent world events, this message of peace is more powerful than ever.

Tower Theater Shows and Tickets




This story is about Linvilla Orchards, one of the most famous farms in three states. And as December approaches, thousands of people come in search of the perfect tree.

At Linvilla people can purchase rare beauties already cut and bound -- or the more adventurous among us, can hunt, cut and carry home a handpicked trophy-tree that brings with it an entire morning or afternoon of pure family fun:
  • Hop aboard the hay wagon (laughing at those of us who are not as agile as we used to be!)
  • When you reach the designated field, families circle potential candidates...pondering...looking for that special quality or quirky flaw that seals the bond that will be forever green.  :)  I couldn't resist!
  • Then Linvilla supplies the saw -- and they haul the tree back to the farm.
  • They also wrap it up, and can even tie it to your car.


But...I suggest that families do that on their own...embracing the tree as gently as possible while hauling it to the car - then laughing like kids while hoisting it upwards, tying it not only to the roof - but to another very special family Christmas.


So in the next few days, grab a jacket and the kids (and rope)...
There are 40,000+ Christmas trees planted on the farm, the majority of which are 6' - 10' Douglas Fir, and some Canaan Fir.

Tree cutting is offered through December 23rd:
Mon - Fri: 10 am - 5 pm (last wagon departs at 4:30pm)
Sat - Sun: 9 am - 5 pm (last wagon departs at 4:30pm)
The cost is $59.99 plus tax.

Pre-cut trees are available in all shapes, sizes and varieties at their Christmas Shop and Garden Center which also offers greens, roping, wreaths, and all of the trimmings.

31 FREE Nights of Christmas at Rose Tree Park

Like many families throughout Philly and the Brandywine, you are probably not the first generation to make an annual holiday pilgrimage to Rose Tree Park's Festival of Lights.

Many of us came with our parents...who came with their parents...as far back as 1976 when it was planned as part of our county-wide festivities honoring the nation's Bicentennial.


On December 4th at 7pm Delaware County Council will officially open the 39th Festival of Lights, with the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony.  Residents and visitors alike are invited join the celebration, then stroll the park which will be aglow with 75 decorated trees and more than 100,000 holiday lights.  


If you have kids, it never gets old to watch their faces light up as they drag you from the gingerbread house, to the giant snowman family to the sturdy toy soldiers watching guard over the festival.

Live carolers often appear, but a handsome group of hand-crafted carolers (created years ago by students at the Williamson College of the Trades) are always part of the display.

Your Festival hosts are twinkling characters from holiday lore: Rudolph, Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and Santa.

And if you don't have kids, its just as nice taking a quiet walk through memories of Christmas past... 



DETAILS:
Lights are on 5:30-9:30 p.m. nightly through Jan. 3
Rose Tree Park, 1671 N. Providence Road., Upper Providence, 19063.
Admission is free. Leashed pets are welcome.
The Tree Lighting Ceremony is weather permitting with no rain date.

This Year Marks Hedgerow Theatre's 23rd Annual Presentation of the Classic Dickens Tale...A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Adapted and directed by Artistic Director Jared Reed 

From December 4th to 27th Ebenezer Scrooge will transform from a mean, miserable, blow-hard of a man... into one who honors Christmas in his heart. 
Not an easy transition! This one requires ghostly visitations that shake and rattle the bones...but it also features a large multi-generational cast and a host of traditional carols that make this a perfect way to celebrate the season.


A bit of not so ghostly trivia...did you know that the theater itself shares an eerie birth with the Dickens play?
Hedgerow's Grist Mill home was built in the early 1840s...and Dickens penned this redemption tale in 1843.

He also write 4 other Christmas Novellas:

The Chimes (1844)
The Cricket on the Hearth (1845)
The Battle of Life (1846)
The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain (1848)

NO...YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO ALASKA.

  • loomed over by sky scrapers
  • surrounded by highways traversed by millions each week
  • soared over by thousands of jets taking off and landing at PHL
  • and dwarfed by huge bridges connecting PA and NJ



You might even make a new friend while hiking off your holiday snacking...
