East Passyunk Avenue is in the holiday spirit. This month, the neighborhood is hosting special events for shoppers who still need to cross a few things off their list.

Running errands can be dreary but holiday mummers, complimentary hot cider, the Holly Trolley and visits from Santa help turn the chore into a festive affair.
