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.
