2017 Franklin Square Holiday Festival
Daily, November 9 – December 31 (Closed Thanksgiving and Christmas Day)
4 - 8 pm, until 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays
Experience the magic of the holidays and celebrate traditions new and old at the Franklin Square Holiday Festival, featuring plenty of family fun, delicious comfort foods, and special events!
Inspired by Benjamin Franklin's electrifying genius, the free Electrical Spectacle Holiday Light Show presented by PECO is the key to holiday fun in Franklin Square. Marvel at more than 50,000 lights as they shimmer, dance, and illuminate the Square to a soundtrack of holiday classics, some of which are performed by The Philly POPS® in two alternating shows every 30 minutes (November 9 - December 31, 4:30 - 8 pm, Sundays - Thursdays, 9 pm on Fridays & Saturdays; final show at 8 pm on December 24). Every evening, one lucky audience member will be selected to "ignite" the 4:30 pm show. http://www.historicphiladelphia.org/franklin-square/holidays-in-franklin-square/
