It’s sparkle time at Franklin Square for the 2019 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 make-your-own s’mores, gourmet hot chocolate, and winter cocktails inside the heated tent with views of the Square. From November 14 – December 31, dazzle in the lights of the Electrical Spectacle Holiday Light Show presented by PECO. In addition to the Parx Liberty Carousel and Philly Mini Golf, additional 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, Santa Paws Pet Night presented by Merck Animal Health, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, 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.
