A giant Ferris wheel is coming to Christmas Village. Find it in the new Wawa Holiday Plaza, a new expansion by the Philly Holiday Tree.

Christmas Village will return on Thursday, Nov. 28, and this year, there's going to be a 65-foot-tall Ferris wheel in addition to the vendors, carousel and 27-foot glowing present.

The amusement ride will be located within the Wawa Holiday Plaza, a new expansion of Christmas Village for 2019 that encompasses the Philly Holiday Tree on North Broad outside of City Hall.

A bird's eye view of all the festivities will be available from the top of the giant Ferris wheel. Visitors can look out at LOVE Park where the majority of the open-air German Christmas market is located and over at the Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market at Dilworth Park. Tickets to ride will be $4.

In addition to the Ferris wheel and holiday tree, the new Wawa Holiday Plaza will include more wooden stalls with Christmas Village vendors and a train for kids. Like the carousel, the new children's ride will cost $3.
