    With temperatures rising, happy hours getting earlier, days getting longer and those vacation hours dying to be used, it's hard to stay inside during summertime.

     

    One huge summer staple is the outdoor festival, and here at PFG, we absolutely love a good summer festival! That's why we've put together a list of some of the top festivals coming to the Philly area this summer season. Whether it’s food, music or art, if you can enjoy it outside, we've got it covered here.

     

    Check back all season long, as we'll be updating you with the latest summer spectaculars.

    Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival - *LAST WEEK*

     

    Back by popular demand for a triumphant third season, the Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival is a celebration of light and culture that features artisans from China and the Philadelphia region. For seven weeks, Franklin Square will glow with more than 25 larger-than-life illuminated displays of giant flowers, a three-story pagoda, the newly rebuilt Chinese dragon and much more. Festival-goers will enjoy daily performances, culinary exploration, crafts by working artists. Plus, you’ll still be able to play Philly Mini Golf, ride the Parx Liberty Carousel, and enjoy center city’s premiere play place during the duration of the festival.

     

    Make sure you see it before it ends this Saturday, June 30th!
