Fireflies on the Parkway

The whole family (including grandparents) took a ride in the Firefly pedicabs on the  Benjamin Franklin Parkway:

 

In celebration of the Parkway’s 100 year anniversary, the Association for Public Art commissioned Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang (known for his incredible fireworks displays and gunpowder art) to create a site-specific work.  Nine hundred handcrafted, illuminated lanterns decorate a fleet of 27 pedicabs – which the public can ride in from September 14 to October 8, 2017.
