Historic Philadelphia, Inc. News & Events!


FALL FUN IN HISTORIC PHILADELPHIA!

Spooky Mini Golf is back at Franklin Square in October, seven days a week this year! Putt through 18 holes of Philly landmarks during the day, and then watch the golf course transform into frightening fun for all ages from 6-9 p.m. every night!

Visit the Betsy Ross House Friday evenings in October for Spooky Twilight Tours to hear true, macabre tales about bloodletting, small pox, yellow fever, and more.

Make it a night with the "Spooky Twosome" package, including admission to the Spooky Twilight Tour at the Betsy Ross House and a round of Spooky Mini Golf at Franklin Square!


ONCE UPON A NATION

Please note that all Once Upon A Nation tours and programs, including Tippler's Tours, Independence After Hours, and Storytelling Benches, have been suspended for the 2020 season due to the current public safety restrictions.




FRANKLIN SQUARE

We are excited to welcome you back to enjoy the Parx Liberty Carousel, Philly Mini Golf, SquareBurger, outdoor recreation, and Fun for All! Plus, to celebrate our reopening, the free Franklin Square Fountain Show will run performances every 30 minutes from noon to 2 p.m. and 6 to 9 p.m.! Little ones can stay active with our new Franklin Square Silly Stroll, and everyone can enjoy the outdoors with out walking loop around the park (3x around = 1 mile).
