Holiday Festival and Electrical Spectacle Holiday Light Show


Nov 14, 2019 to Dec 31, 2019
04:00 PM until 09:00 PM


The big draw here is the Electrical Spectacle Holiday Light Show. In addition to the Parx Liberty Carousel and Philly Mini Golf, holiday entertainment includes #FranklinSquareFridays, Santa Saturdays, Seasonal Sounds on Sundays, Lightning Bolt Holiday Express train rides around the Square, and the Kids’ New Year’s Eve Countdown and Dance Party.

Celebrate many traditions with Santa, the Grinch, Santa Paws Pet Night presented by Merck Animal Health, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and the princesses from Frozen. Kids are invited to bring their letters to Santa for the Santa Mailbox, or deliver them in person to him on Santa Saturdays.

Adults enjoy a beer garden with fir pits, while all ages can try Ben’s Sweets & Treats, where guests can create and taste make-your-own s’mores, hot chocolate and cocktails.
