PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Two of Philadelphia's most popular holiday attractions, Christmas Village and the Comcast Center light show, will have a special connection this season.

It's called the Holiday Trail and you'll find it in Suburban Station until Christmas Eve.

"If you come in from regional rail, as soon as you pop up, you can follow the trail to either Comcast or Dilworth," said Darcy Anders, who helped organize this new concept. "On the way there will be live music, an art exhibit and SEPTA's also decorating a train which they will have open to the public to walk through on one of the tracks down there."

But even if you're already in town, Anders said feel free to head on down to the concourse and use the trail, if nothing else, to get out of the cold.

"It's warm, it's convinient, you don't have to cross streets, it's quick and there'll be public restrooms, snacks," she said. "It's just a curated way to cut through the crowds and get from one destination to another."

There will be signs on ground to guide you to your desitnation. Anders said you can't miss them.
