This weekend is full of activities all ages can enjoy.

Get all the details on what's happening in our roundup below.

Ice skate at Dilworth Park on rink's opening night

Friday evening, the rink outside City Hall will officially open for the season. To celebrate, there will be ice sculptors, snow, firework effects, fire performances and figure skating.

After skating, warm up in the tent next to the rink with hot chocolate, beer or cocktails.

Get into the holiday spirit early at Peddler's Village

Holiday festivities begin Friday evening at Peddler's Village in Lahaska, Bucks County. Mrs. Claus will make an appearance to lead a parade through the outdoor shopping center to a tree lighting ceremony. 

The family-friendly event will also include complimentary ornament-making, hot chocolate and cookies.

Go the distance at the annual Rocky Run

There's still time to register for Saturday's Rocky Run. Choose from the 5K, the 10-mile run and the 13.1-mile Italian Stallion Challenge.

Each course begins and ends at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, but no one has to race up the art museum steps like Rocky Balboa.

Catch a performance of "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"

On Tuesday, Roald Dahl's amazing tale debuted at the Academy of Music. The production includes songs from the original film, including "Pure Imagination," "The Candy Man" and "I've Got a Golden Ticket," alongside a new score from the songwriters of "Hairspray."

Tickets for the opening weekend start at $25.
