Our Christmas Village double decker Carousel is located in the middle of City Halls Courtyard. This old school carousel is great fun for the whole family with its horses, carriages and reindeers to ride on. In an effort to keep everybody safe, we ask that kids under 42" are accompanied by a responsible, paying adult.


Since 2019, Christmas Village features a 65' high Ferris Wheel. The Ferris Wheel is located at the North Broad Section of the market and shines bright towards North Broad Street. The majestic Municipal Christmas tree of the City of Philadelphia as well as a bunch of Christmas Village vendors make it a fun place to be. Please note that kids under 54" have to be accompanied by a responsible, paying adult. Also, visibly intoxicated people are not allowed to ride our Ferris Wheel. Safety first!
