FYI Philly: Welcome to summer festival season

This week on FYI Philly, we're nearing summer festival season. From the Chinese Lanterns festival to an illuminated fountain garden and outdoor concerts, we know what you'll want to do this summer. Then, we visit a row home turned giant jewelry box, try a popular fitness class followed by some healthy sipping options. Plus, we found some local folks making life smell a little sweeter.

FYI Philly airs Saturdays at 7 p.m. with encore shows Sundays at midnight. Here are the details on this week's features:

You can experience the cultural traditions of another world just by traveling to Franklin Square. The Chinese Lantern Festival is open and runs through June 11th (Sun.-Thurs. 6-10 p.m.; Fri.-Sat. 6-11p.m.)
