Phillies Holiday Sale and Tree Lighting Ceremony returns
11/23/2009 10:23 AM ET
On Saturday, December 5, and Sunday, December 6, the Phillies will host their annual Holiday Sale at the Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park.

The two-day event will be highlighted by a holiday tree and ballpark lighting ceremony (Saturday only), complete with carolers, Phillies Ballgirls, Phoebe and the Phillie Phanatic as Phanta Claus.

Both days will feature free photos with Phanta Claus (please bring own camera), book signings, a Phillies Charities memorabilia sale featuring game-used bats, jerseys and caps and authenticated game-used collectibles.

Fans attending the event are asked to help the needy by bringing canned food items to the Majestic Clubhouse Store for local food bank Philabundance. Last year nearly 1,000 cans of food were collected at the event.

Parking is free in Lot S, located off Pattison Avenue between Broad Street and Citizens Bank Way. (Must mention the Holiday Sale for free parking).
