A Look Ahead to the Holidays:
Media has a great tradition of holiday events and beautiful streets for shoppers and diners to enjoy. We hope Media is your go-to destination for unique and authentic shopping and dining. Mark your calendars, invite a friend, and get a jump on the holiday season here. As we prepare for the 2013 season, here's a preview of upcoming events:
  • Santa's Arrival & Festival of Lights: This event will take place at the Delaware County Courthouse again this year on Friday, November 29. The festivities start at 5pm with the Phillie Phanatic and Santa Claus as our special guests. When Santa turns on the lights this year, he'll illuminate our new lights on the buildings along Veteran Square connecting Front Street to State Street!  And the Star Wars Characters from the 501st Garrison Carida will be joining us to assist with collecting donations for Toys for Tots and the Media Food Bank.
