Phillies holiday sale & tree lighting ceremony this weekend
11/29/2010 12:00 AM ET
On Saturday, December 4, and Sunday, December 5, 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. Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins will also be joining the festivities.

Both days will feature free photos with Phanta Claus (please bring own camera), book signings, a meet and greet with Phillies broadcasters, a Phillies Charities memorabilia sale featuring game-used items, and more.

Fans attending the event are asked to help the needy by bringing canned food items to the Majestic Clubhouse Store for the Food Bank of South Jersey. Last year thousands of canned goods 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).

The Majestic Clubhouse Store will feature unique holiday gifts for fans of all ages (while supplies last), such as:
• An array of Phillies holiday decorations including Santa hats, Phillie Phanatic stockings, candy cane ornaments and three exclusive Christmas ornaments with the Phanatic, "4-in-a-Row Division Champs" and "Fightin' Phils."
• Exclusive Roy Halladay Cy Young Award merchandise including a t-shirt for men, women and children, as well as a collectible pin, pennant and two plaques.
