At Franklin Square: A light spectacular and food trucks

Franklin Square's Electrical Spectacle: A Holiday Light Show: A brand new tradition for the holidays sparked by Benjamin Franklin's imagination is the key to holiday fun in Franklin Square this season. Funded by a grant from the William Penn Foundation, the Show provides an original twist on typical holiday light shows.

It’s the holiday season and that means Franklin Square has been taken over by lights, lights and… more lights!

The Franklin Square Electrical Spectacle is here for their Holiday Light Show, set to a soundtrack by the Philly POPS. Every day, starting at 4 p.m., the evening festivities kick-off and will occur every half hour until the final show at 8 p.m. The light show isn’t the only attraction – ride the carousel, play Philly-themed mini golf, and dine on seasonal fare from some of Philly’s best food trucks. 

Beginning this week, a variety of delicious food vendors will be on site during the light display hours. The November schedule for food trucks is as follows (subject to change):
