The lighted signs above the Divine Lorraine Hotel — darkened for years — will glow again Oct. 27 as part of a block party along Melon Street and North Park Avenue benefiting the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

"It should be a good time for everyone to come out, and everyone's invited," Chris Cordaro, vice president of EB Realty, tells Curbed Philadelphia. "It will be an opportunity to strengthen the community message, which is really important to us in our developments along the North Broad corridor."

EB Realty has undertaken a $44 million renovation of the 122-year-old landmark on North Broad Street.
The building itself will not be open to the public during the block party.
