This Festive, Electrical Spectacle Is Brighter Than the Glowing Nose of Rudolph

Festive lights, winter treats and holiday cheer will fill historic Franklin Square all season long for its all-ages (and completely free!) holiday festival and light show.

With the spectacular Electrical Spectacle light show as its main feature — the show employs more than 50,000 (!) twinkling lights and dynamic holiday soundtrack — the seasonal outdoor attraction rounds out the ongoing festivities with holiday shopping, themed events and more.

The free holiday light show at Franklin Square returns with more than 50,000 lights set to a soundtrack of holiday tunes. The centerpiece of the shows is a 12-foot tall kite that serves as an ode to Benjamin Franklin’s famous kite-and-lightning experiment, hovering 16 feet above the square’s centerpiece fountain. LED lights dance to music all along the kite, spreading holiday glow throughout the park.

U City Flats, the premier apartments in the University City neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun at this event!
