#PhillyFive Things to Do: Dec. 6, 2014

Keep it real, everybody.

Keep it real, everybody.

For a day in the park: Sister Cities Park (18th St. and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway) will not only offer carriage rides around the space but will also hold an ice carving demonstration, a traveling science show from the Franklin Institute, food from Logan Square Café and more during FrostFest, held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

For an international trip: While staying in Philly — the Penn Museum (3260 South St.), more specifically — attendees to the Peace Around the World celebration will learn about cultures in India, Japan, Lithuania, Mexico and beyond. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., storytellers, musicians and museum tours will educate families on holiday traditions.

For families: Christmas touches down at the Kimmel Center (Broad and Spruce Streets) today when families can decorate the tree in the venue's Commonwealth Plaza and kids can get their picture snapped with Santa from noon until 3 p.m.

For charity: From noon to 10 p.m. today (and tomorrow), stop by two local Pinkberry locations (763 W. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr, Pa. and 500 Rt. 73 S., Marlton, N.J.) to donate a new, unwrapped toy to benefit Little Smiles Pa. And for your generosity, you'll get a free mini froyo and be entered to win a signed Jeremy Maclin football.

For a demo: During the National Liberty Museum's (3rd and Chestnut Streets) holiday glass art, jewelry and accessories gift sale, artist Deb DiMarco (whose work will be available for purchase) will explain the process of glassblowing. She'll begin her demonstration at 1 p.m.
