Last chance to ride the fireflies

For the past couple months, evenings on the Ben Franklin Parkway have been filled with glowing lights — the lantern-adorned pedicabs in artist Cai Guo-Qiang's interactive installation. If you've only caught them on friends' Instagram feeds, this weekend is your last chance to take advantage yourself. Bonus: Parks on Tap has a pop-up in Shakespeare Park, right outside the Free Library and next to the pedicab station.

Where: Shakespeare Park at Logan Square, 19103

When: October 7, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. to October 8, 2017 at 10:00 p.m.

How much: Rides are free, beer and food is pay as you go
