Video: Happy 4th from Philadelphia

In this 1:39 video, Historic Philadelphia features Benjamin Franklin and a dozen living history actors dancing to Pharrel William’s “Happy” on the streets of the City of Brotherly Love. Dozens of ongoing and special events will take place on and around Independence Mall over Independence Week and the summer and this video shows the fun and lively side of its history.  It was produced by Historic Philadelphia, Inc. (@HistoricPhilly), Independence Visitor Center (@PHLVisitorCntr), National Constitution Center (@ConstitutionCtr), Visit Philadelphia (@VisitPhilly), and Independence National Historical Park (@INDEPENDENCENHP). More information is available at   Thanks to Sandy Lloyd for sharing this video.

    Hi Max,

    Gosh! Thanks for posting this! Hope others find it as fun as those who put it together (I was just a bystander). It was filmed on a very hot day last week and all the actors volunteered their time and dancing skills (!), so it has been nice to see that overall, folks have enjoyed seeing this dedicated gang bring some life to the streets of Philadelphia.

    More soon, but just wanted to say thanks!!

    Best, Sandy
