Independence Blue Cross President Paul Tufano helped kick off a third season of the Deck the Hall Light Show presented by Independence Blue Cross. On November 25, Tufano joined Paul Levy, president and CEO of Center City District, and Bernie Prazenica, president and general manager of 6ABC, for the premiere at Dilworth Park.

Deck the Hall is a free choreographed light show projected on Philadelphia’s historic City Hall. The light show is synchronized to festive holiday music. The nightly show runs through January 1, 2020. The show kicks off at 5:30 p.m. each day, and the last show starts at 8:30 p.m.

New this season

Visitors can become part of the magic with Play the Lights. This interactive keyboard is synced to visual effects that are projected onto the façade of City Hall with each note played. Local, professional pianists and organists will be on-site every week to showcase this one-of-a-kind experience.

Play the Lights will be active every Tuesday and Wednesday night from 8:45-9:30 p.m. Entry is on a first-come, first-served basis. It is free for visitors of all ages.
