Bundle Up in Your Favorite Scarf and Head Out to the Franklin Square Holiday Festival

It’s sparkle time at Franklin Square for the 2018 Franklin Square Holiday Festival, including a winter beer garden with fire pits for warmth and charm and Ben’s Sweets & Treats where guests can create and taste a variety of treats such as s’mores and gourmet hot chocolate stations inside the heated tent with views of the Square.

Through December 31, dazzle in the lights of the Electrical Spectacle Holiday Light Show presented by PECO. Holiday entertainment includes #FranklinSquareFridays, Santa Saturdays, Seasonal Sounds on Sundays, Lightning Bolt Holiday Express train rides around the Square, and the traditional family-friendly Kid’s New Year’s Eve Countdown and Dance Party.

Celebrate many holiday traditions with Santa, the Grinch, Hanukkah, Kwanza, pets in winter festive gear, and even the princesses from Frozen. Kids are invited to bring their letters to Santa for the special Santa Mailbox, or deliver them in person to him on Santa Saturdays.

The Franklin Square Holiday Festival was named one of America’s Top 10 Holiday Festivals by Fox News in 2016. Join us this year to find out what makes this festival so special!
