Franklin Square’s Electrical Spectacle: A Holiday Light Show

Ben Franklin’s namesake park sparkles during the holiday season. Franklin Square’s Electrical Spectacle: A Holiday Light Show features dancing lights, a 10-foot-tall kite and holiday music every 30 minutes. Other festivities include visits from Dr. Franklin himself, Santa and other special guests; rides on the Franklin Square holiday train and the Philadelphia Park Liberty Carousel; seasonal treats at SquareBurger; and even mini-golf with warming stations.
