The Comcast Holiday Spectacular

The Comcast Holiday Spectacular is a unique holiday experience that captures the wonderful spirit of the season and has entertained close to a million visitors since its 2008 debut. The free 15-minute show, updated with new scenes and computer generated animation this year, will continue to delight audiences with classic holiday images and crisp wintertime sounds -- all shown on The Comcast Experience video wall, one of the world's highest resolution LED displays. The Comcast Holiday Spectacular can be seen at the top of each hour at Comcast Center from Thanksgiving Day through New Year's Day. All are welcome to share in celebrating the holidays in this festive and family-friendly tradition. Children of all ages will receive a free waterless temporary tattoo that will be valid for a one-time "tasty treat" from The Market & Shops at Comcast Center during the Holiday Spectacular run. Additionally, every Saturday in December, Sprout, the 24-hour preschool network, will offer free live shows with Chica, the world's most famous chicken, and her friends from the live, daily morning show, "The Sunny Side Up Show." Stop at The Market & Shops on the concourse before or after watching The Comcast Holiday Spectacular to see the live show (10:30 am, 11:30 am, 12:30 pm and 1:30 pm).
