The First Annual Old City Light Festival is tonight. Everything will be very picturesque and pretty — as implied in the name of the shindig, everything will be illuminated.
The festivities begin on First Friday, November 7, 2008 at 7:00pm, with a free party at Old City Ironworks (141 N 3rd Street). There will be plenty of food & drinks provided by Haru, National Mechanics, Paddy’s Pub and Konak Restaurant to energize party-goers. A live jazz band will be providing smooth sounds for the evening and there will be a drawing to win an Old City Collective Gift Basket worth $1000.
Apparently, “the real reason to attend the Old City Light Festival is to see Philadelphia’s own Ben Franklin, on hand to help electrify the kick-off party,” but we’re going to go with a different real reason. (Food, booze, lights, in that very order.) More info is available here, at the Old City District website.
