The first-ever Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival is at Franklin Square now through June 12, 2016. The Festival, appearing for the first time in the Northeast United States, is a celebration of light and culture that features artisans from China and the Philadelphia region.
Franklin Square will glow with more than 25 larger-than-life illuminated displays of giant flowers, a three-story pagoda, a huge Chinese dragon and much more, created using traditional Chinese methods with thousands of LED lights in brilliant colors.

Admission to Franklin Square remains completely free before 6 p.m. After 6 p.m., tickets are required to enter the square and the Chinese Lantern Festival.
