Every weekend from June through Sept. 1, bring the kids to the farm market and enjoy summer with live music, local brew beer, wine, cocktails, and tasty bites. The best part is the ice cream! Grab a picnic table and relax while the kids play on the playground.

From the city to the burbs – a Philadephia favorite day! Grab your free hoagies at Wawa’s historic day celebrating our local heroes. Wawa will serve hoagies at noon at Independence Mall. While grabbing your lunch, enjoy the music of the String Soldiers of the United States Army String Band. To top off the celebration, the Constitution Center will feature free admission for the day. So bring your picnic baskets and blankets and enjoy those hogies.

One of my favorite things to do when I summon the summer is bring whole families to this fun event. This event is full of fun activities, giant inflatables to DJ, and live music. The kids will love the interactive Live science games and remember to get the food!
