Philly Holiday Christmas Tree Lighting 2016
Philadelphia, Pa- The 23rd annual Philly Holiday Christmas Tree Lighting officially kicked off the holiday season this past, Saturday at City Hall.
Mayor of Philadelphia, Jim Kenney and guests turned on the lights of the 40-foot-tall, 4,000 pound Colorado Fir that has been harvested in Pennsylvania.
The base of the tree is newly designed, showcasing 20 Philadelphia neighborhoods along with their own iconic scenes and trademarks.
"I love our tree. This is my first as Mayor. We wanted a nice big one with a nice beautiful base and we hope that everyone can get some peace and joy." Mayor Kenney says.
Amor is Here to Stay!
Today, Robert Indiana's Amor statue marked Philadelphia as its official home in Sister Cities Park.
After being temporarily placed in Philadelphia during the visit of Pope Francis, the statue received its ribbon cutting ceremony making it official.
The Amor statue means love, in both the Spanish and Latin language. Having already a Love statue, the Amor statue will represent the multi-cultural people living in and making Philadelphia the home of brotherly and sisterly love that it's known as today!

South Philadelphia's very own Cacia's Bakery!
PHILADELPHIA, Pa — South Philadelphia’s very own Cacia’s Bakery first opened in 1953. Now it has expanded to six locations and employs the fifth generation of Cacia bakers.
Joseph Cacia II started working when he was 12, selling rolls out of a push cart with his father.
Once they were able to, the Cacia family moved into an upstairs apartment that is located inside the bakery’s building.
Sam Cacia says how it was convenient for his grandfather because all he had to do to get to work was walk down the stairs.
