Light it up, Phillies-style
You better watch out, you better not cry, Phanta Claus is coming to town.
No, that's not a typo.
The Phillie Phanatic will don the big red suit Saturday for the Phillies Holiday Sale & Tree Lighting.
There will be sales at the Majestic Clubhouse Store - think 20 percent off all purchases and $15 doorbusters on gifts including backpacks, artwork, and cooler bags, as well as signed and game-used items from the Phillies Charities Memorabilia Sale.
But there's more than shopping to be done: Get a chance to hang out with 2008 World Championship skipper Charlie Manuel, who will make an appearance from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m., along with Phillies broadcasters.
There will be a tour of the decorated clubhouse and several photo opportunities. You know you want your photo with Phanta Claus, who will be ready for his close-up from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The evening caps off at 5 p.m. when Citizens Bank Park's massive tree is lighted for the holiday season.
