Franklin Square: Making Christmas Bright

Maybe it's the thousands of twinkling lights or maybe it's the excitement in the eyes of the children running around the square, but whatever it is, Franklin Square will put a smile on the face of even the biggest scrooge at Christmas time.

Take a ride on the Lighting Bolt Express (tickets are required) on December 20 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The holiday season comes alive with the sounds of Christmas. Listen as Courtney's Carolers belt out your holiday favs from noon until 2 p.m.

Santa and Elfreth put some ho ho ho in your holidays every Saturday and Sunday through Christmas Eve. Get pictures with the big guy from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. or settle in with some hot cocoa to hear the tales of Christmas from the mouth of Mrs. Claus.
