For Memorial Weekend we hopped on a bus and stayed overnight in Philly. We go there a lot. We love it there. But this time around we wanted to check out the Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square. It’s really cute. It opened April 22 and closes June 12th. It’s $17 a ticket for adults, kids (ages 3-17) $12, $15 for seniors and military, kids 2 years and under are free. They have performances, food vendors and stands where you can buy trinkets.
We didn’t get to see the performances. We arrived around 9pm because we wanted it nice and dark. They had some hula hoop shows and Chinese Opera. We spent our time wandering around the lanterns.
They are created and designed in China from LED lights using traditional techniques.
The giant dragon was my favorite. The beer garden is here.
Vic liked the peach trees.
Great event for adults and kids.
