Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival at Franklin Square
Last night I was able to preview the first-ever Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square! This will take place in the Square starting today, April 22 to June 12, 2016. The Festival, appearing for the first time in the Northeast United States, is a celebration of light and culture that features artisans from China and the Philadelphia region. Franklin Square will glow with more than 25 larger-than-life illuminated displays of giant flowers, a three-story pagoda, a huge Chinese dragon and much more, created using traditional Chinese methods with thousands of LED lights in brilliant colors.
Times: Daily, 6 - 10 pm, Fri. & Sat. until 11 pm
