Awesome drone video captures Miracle on 13th Street from the sky

Josh Middleton

Philly street art blog Streets Dept and video production company WeFilmPhilly teamed up on this cool aerial video of Miracle on 13th Street, the annual holiday-light spectacular that transforms a whole block in South Philly into a very-Philly holiday wonderland.

You’ve never seen the attraction quite like this. The drone camera zooms slowly north over the lit-up block while you hear Santa ho-ho-ho-ing and “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas” playing at one of the homes below. Off in the distance the clear night reveals the city skyline. Check out the video below—it’s like something out of an old-school holiday movie.

Find Miracle on 13th Street in person along the 1600 block of South 13th Street. The display continues through January 1, so you’ll have time to check it out well after Christmas. Consult our guide on where to find the best Christmas lights in Philadelphia for even more illuminated holiday adventures.
