Christmas in July! Santa kicks off sale of ‘A Philly Pops Christmas: Spectacular Sounds of the Season’

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — It truly was Christmas in July in Center City on Friday as Philadelphia prepared for one of its cherished traditions: the annual Philly POPS Christmas Concert.

Christmas music, gifts and a visit from Santa were part of the celebrations as ticket sales for A Philly POPS Christmas: Spectacular Sounds of the Season officially began.

Our Alicia Vitarelli got a chance to chat with Broadway star Mandy Gonzalez, who’s back for her fourth Christmas season with the POPS.

“I love it,” says Gonzalez. “It feels like coming home.”

She says we can expect the full glory of this time-honored tradition at the Kimmel Cultural Campus.

“Santa will definitely be there, which is so exciting,” says Gonzalez. “We have choirs, Christmas trees and lights. But really it’s about the people. We’ll be together and we’ll sing together at the end. It’s going to be a party.”

At Friday’s launch event in Center City, Santa helped distribute 150 bicycles and helmets to the children of first responders and military personnel.

The POPS Christmas Concert Series is coming to Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Cultural Campus December 3-17.
