Electrical Spectacle Holiday Light Show at Franklin Square

Holiday Light Show at Franklin Square

‘Magical Holiday Enchantment for Kids of All Ages’ 

Lights take over Franklin Square during this festive 2017 holiday season!

The Electrical Spectacle Holiday Light Show at Franklin Square, November 9 to December 31, is one holiday attraction for the whole family to enjoy and not miss. This holiday light show features a dazzling display of more than 50,000 lights that have been designed specifically for this popular public space.

This free attraction features a 10-foot-tall kite made of lights that sparkle and spread down a custom 250-foot kite string and hundreds of feet of holiday garlands, which will cover the Square. As you watch this colorful light display, you’ll hear lively holiday music which is provided by our own, The Philly Pops.

Weather permitting, these lights are set to dazzle you eight times daily, every 30 minutes, between 4:30 to 8:00 pm Sunday through Thursday and until 9:00 pm Fridays and Saturdays. You can experience two different seven-minute shows that will alternate throughout each evening.

The holiday light show isn’t the only attraction at Franklin Square. The kids can ride the carousel, play Philly-themed mini golf, dine on seasonal fare from some of Philly’s best food trucks and enjoy local beers daily from 4:00 to 8:00 pm and until 9 pm on Friday’s and Saturday’s.

Bonus: A volunteer from the audience will be selected to “ignite” the 4:30 pm show each day.
