The Divine Lorraine Hotel is Having a Block Party and Sign Lighting Ceremony!
One of the most iconic buildings in Philadelphia is going to see signs of life on October 27th. EB Realty, the group responsible for the restoration of the Divine Lorraine Hotel has announced via Philly Curbed that they will be hosting a sign lighting ceremony that will double as a block party.
The public is welcome to attend, however the inside of the building will not be accessible due to permit restrictions and ongoing lobby restoration work. The outside will be live and in full effect. The block party will be benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region and will take place at the foot of the Divine Lorraine along Melon Street and N. Park Avenue. Expect a beer garden, vendors pushing Divine Lorraine Hotel merch, cornhole games, live music and more!
Apparently the sign lighting was supposed to take place back in September but due to city permit issues it was push back to late October. The festivities at the Divine Lorraine Hotel are scheduled to kick-off at 4 pm with a large crowd expected.
