FAMILY FUN
 Main Streets Festival of Lights

The Festival of Lights, a Delaware County tradition
for more than 40 years, illuminates the winter evenings with dozens of lighted trees and festive displays. The glimmering walkways and grounds create a magical atmosphere throughout
the month of December, as visitors young and old frolic amongst figures such as Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang, and Santa and his reindeer. And after Santa heads back to the North Pole, Rose Tree Park’s expansive 120 acres allow plenty of space for all kinds of additional outdoor activities, including kite-flying, bird-watching, sledding, cross-country skiing and more!

Cloverleaf Stables > cloverleaf-stables.com
Know why we love Cloverleaf Stables? Because it’s a place where there’s nothin’ but horsin’ around. (Ha! We’re here all week, folks.) Seriously, Cloverleaf is the perfect place for all things equestrian — trail rides, lessons, birthday parties,
pony rides and boarding. We are particularly fond of the stables’ romantic sunset trail rides through the Brandywine-Beaver Valley. Hayrides are another family-friendly option, especially on those crisp autumn evenings when the sun goes down before a little one’s bedtime. Whether you’ve grown up riding or you’re just starting out, Cloverleaf will make sure the saddle you’re sitting in fits just right.

Nicholas Smith Toys & Trains

Did you know that Santa has
a branch of his North Pole workshop right here in the center of Delco? It’s on
Route 3 in Broomall, and he has even stationed two highly trained wooden soldiers at the door to guard it. Good little girls and boys of all ages are welcome to enter and see the magic that waits inside. Shelves and shelves packed full of the elves’ finest work reach from floor to ceiling. Take a short trip upstairs and you can find just about any model train you can imagine, as well as see them chug, chug, chug around the track. All told, it’s a collection so magnificent
it can only
belong to jolly old St. Nicholas himself. (We just didn’t realize his last name was Smith!)
