Franklin Square’s brand-new holiday light show, Electrical Spectacle: A Holiday Light Show welcomes guests for a glowing show of more than 50,000 lights, recorded holiday tunes by the Philly Pops, a 10-foot-tall kite made of lights, visits from Santa Claus and now, daily food trucks.
From 4 to 8 p.m. every day through Tuesday, December 31, the final day of the Electrical Spectacle: A Holiday Light Show (with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas), Philly’s finest food trucks line up to spread holiday cheer through drinks and bites for guests of the light show.
From doughnuts to grilled cheese to lobster rolls, the food trucks rolling up to Franklin Square are set to serve up sweet and savory treats of all sort.
The food truck schedule will rotate on a daily basis, and include anywhere from one to three trucks. Look forward to eats from local favorites like Sum Pig, The Tot Cart and The Cow and The Curd.
For those stopping by the light show tonight, BrazBQ, The Cow and the Curd and Undrgrnd Donut are slated to provide the eats.
