All are invited to watch for free from Penn's Landing but for a better view, you'll want to grab a spot on Independence Seaport Museum's second floor terrace.

Admission to the museum is $18 for adults and $14 for children, students, seniors and military.

Before the parade, families are invited to spend the day at the museum. There will be arts & crafts and Santa will make an appearance.
