Historic Figures Get Happy in Philly!! #oldschoolphilly

Hip, Hip, Huzzah and Happy July 4th from Philadelphia! Is there a better way to celebrate our nation’s birthday than with a little Happy from Historic Philadelphia?

Thanks to Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” the townspeople of Colonial
have made their own anachronistic video. From Benjamin
Franklin with Colonial-dressed children at the Liberty Bell to Betsy
Ross to Octavius Catto, we hope you’ll take a peek and then help us
spread the good cheer.
Then come visit these Colonials and many more in Historic Philadelphia
this holiday weekend and all summer long. Dozens of ongoing and special
events will take place on and around Independence Mall over Independence
Week, produced by collaboration among Historic Philadelphia, Inc.,
Independence Visitor Center, National Constitution Center, Visit
Philadelphia, and Independence National Historical Park. More
information is available at, and tag us social media with #oldschoolphilly.
