The annual 'Comcast Holiday Spectacular' light show at the Comcast Center is displayed on one of the largest LED screens in the world.

Starting on Tuesday, Nov. 24 the Comcast Center will present "The Comcast Holiday Spectacular" show. Visitors watch The Comcast Experience, one of the world’s largest high-resolution LED displays, for various sights and sounds of the season. The family-friendly experience features a magical sleigh ride from the Philadelphia countryside to high above the city skyline. 

Visitors will also enjoy performances of "Carol of the Bells", "Jingle Bell Rock", "The Twelve Days of Christmas" and "The Nutcracker" by the renowned Philadelphia Ballet and a performance by actors from Philadelphia’s historic Walnut Street Theatre.

"The Comcast Holiday Spectacular" can be seen at the top of each hour at Comcast Center daily. One exception, however: shows are not presented on weekdays at 5 p.m.

Each show is 15 minutes, so they are easy to squeeze in amidst other holiday activities. The show is open on Christmas Eve and Day, as well.
