Winter in Swarthmore!


Swarthmore is glowing with fairy lights and the snowflake flags are waving merrily from the lamp posts! We all know what that means – the holidays are right around the corner!

Here are just a few of the ways we’re preparing for winter here in the village…

Volunteers built and erected the sets for The Nutcracker at Swarthmore Ballet Theatre. Over one hundred people donate their time to make the magic at SBT. Read more about this year’s production here!


Swarthmore Town Center’s Home for the Holidays celebration on December 2nd included dancing with Jeannine Osayande and Dunya Performing Arts…


There was a Holiday Sing-a-Long at Hobbes with SwUKEstra…


After carriage rides, singing, dancing and so many other wonderful activities, the night ended with a holiday tree lighting at the library. Many stuck around for an informal tour of the garden on Park Avenue, with holiday lighting by David Augustine, and to browse at Harvey Oak Mercantile and the other town shops!


Special thanks to Linda Heffernan for donating Home for the Holidays photographs!

Snow fell on the Borough on December 9th, frosting the trees of Cornell Avenue, the shops on Park and the whole village…




…and snow fell in this mini-Swarthmore, created by an SRS 3rd grader at Harvey Oak Mercantile! (HOM often offers a fun free project for children to work on so parents and caregivers can shop!)

We hope to see you in the village soon for holiday fun and throughout the winter season!
