Lantern festivals are traditional Chinese celebrations that mark the end of Chinese New Year celebrations and this year, as part of the Franklin Square's 10th anniversary, Historic Philadelphia celebrated the first-ever Chinese Lantern Festival in Philadelphia.

According to Visit Philly, the event displayed 25 illuminated lanterns, handcrafted giant flowers, a three-story pagoda and a 200-foot-long Chinese dragon. All creations were constructed by lantern artisans from China to make the park come alive each night.

Guests explored the culture and all the radiant displays, with different activities offered during the festival, such as a carousel and a mini golf course.

Throughout the Festival booths were set up throughout the square that offered anything from edible sugar dragons to Chinese calligraphy of visitors' names.
