Read the original article on The Intelligencer

The Phillies are getting into the holiday spirit.

On Saturday and Sunday, they’ll host their annual Holiday Sale and Food Drive at the Majestic Clubhouse Store at Citizens Bank Park.

On Saturday, there will be a holiday tree and ballpark lighting ceremony, complete with carolers, the Phillies Ballgirls, the Phillie Phanatic as Phanta Claus and Phoebe Phanatic. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel and pitcher Vance Worley will also join the festivities.

Both days will feature free photos with Phanta Claus using your own camera, broadcaster meet-and-greets, Phillies Charities memorabilia and Phillies Authentics sales with game-used and other unique items, and more. Fans will have an opportunity to help paint The Phillies Mural Saturday only.

Anyone attending is asked to help the needy by bringing canned food items to benefit Philabundance. Last year, thousands of canned goods were collected at the event.

To park for free in Lot S, off Pattison Avenue between Broad Street and Citizens Bank Way, just mention the holiday sale.

Events run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. For more details, log onto to
