In South Philly, neighbors come together to create epic holiday lights displays each year. The Miracle on 13th Street is the most well-known, but there are other blocks that go all-out, too.

This year, several bars in South Philly also want to show off their decorating skills. The first-ever South Philly Christmas Crawl Throwdown will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 13.

It's a competition mixed with a bar crawl.
