COMCAST CENTER HOLIDAY LIGHT SHOW In 3-D 2009 – Philadelphia’s Newest Holiday Tradition
WOW as if the Comcast Holiday Light Show couldn’t get any better, this year it’s in 3-D and shows daily at the Comcast Center in their lobby at the top of the hour. We’ve taken this holiday show to new heights by making it in 3-D this year. Brian Roberts, Comcast CEO greets the guests this morning (I decided not to share video of the show, as I don’t want to spoil it for you)One of them being Mr. Philadelphia, Albert Lee VIP Concierge at the Philadelphia Independence Visitor Center

The Comcast Holiday Spectacular is shown on The Comcast Experience video wall, which is the world’s largest 4 mm, LED display, with 10 million pixels of clarity. The shows are from 10AM to 8PM, except at 5PM M-F to not disrupt the exiting throngs of people going home.
In the spirit of giving, Comcast and the United Way of Southeastern PA (SEPA) are partnering to encourage people to donate to the United Way’s Community Impact Fund and help fight hunger during this holiday season. At the start of the show, NBA star Shaquille O’Neal will appear on screen and encourage visitors to donate $5 to the United Way SEPA by texting ‘PHILLY’ to 864833 which will also be displayed on the screen.This 15-minute show, full of stunning original holiday imagery, music and more, will be shown on The Comcast Experience video wall at the top of each hour from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day.
All who see the show will receive keepsake 3-D glasses. Comcast Center is at 17th and JFK Boulevard. Again, the shows are from 10AM to 8PM, except at 5PM M-F to not disrupt the exiting throngs of people going home. From Thanksgiving until Christmas Day. (I then recommend you run over to the Macy’s Holiday Light Show, (13th & Market) which is also on the top of the hour, but by the time you walk over there with the kids it will be close to show time.)
