{philadelphia} lanterns all around

May 24, 2017

Hello!

Last weekend, my mom and little sister came into town for my graduation on Monday, so we got to do some exploring in the city. We visited the Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square, a display of hundreds of different types of lanterns. It would definitely be cooler to visit at night, when the lanterns are lit, but nighttime tickets can get pricey, and daytime admission is completely free! They still look pretty cool, even during the day. See below for just a small taste of the many different lanterns.

The famous Terra Cotta Warriors in lantern form

An underwater lantern world

A walkway with all of the Chinese zodiac animals as lanterns lining both sides

Panda lanterns – so cute!

My pictures definitely do not do the display justice. It was pretty cool, even though we did not get to see them lit up at night!
