Lighthouse Parade/Party (2018)

  • Date: September 28, 2018
  • Time: 2:00pm - 5:00pm

Due to unsafe water conditions, all boating activities will be cancelled tonight. But the on-land activities are good to go!!!

Ignite the night! Join our glow-in-the-dark parade of puppets, musicians and dancers led by Spiral Q and the Second 2 None Drill Team as it flows downstream through the garden from Lindbergh Boulevard to the banks of the Lower Schuylkill. It will be an evening of illuminated boating highlighted by music, dancing, food trucks and the opportunity to experience Stacy Levy’s floating Tide Field installation after dark.

Come dressed in neon and white to really shine on the riverside black light dance floor.
