Here’s a look at what’s going on this holiday weekend.
Tap a bit more into the farm side of the farm-to-table movement. Bring the kids shopping at the Weavers Way farmstand. This weekend’s offerings include scallions, peaches, peppers of the rainbow, tomatoes, plums and the first hints of apples. You’ll also be able to spot locally-made/grown food from Seven Stars Yogurt, Philly Muffins, Merrymead and Wholesome Dairy milk, Fruitwood Orchards, Sunny Harvest and Beechwood Orchards.
Take the kids or make it date night! Head down to Penn’s Landing for a free concert with Valerie Simpson (of Ashford and Simpson, Solid as a Rock!). Enjoy the last few moments of true summer at 7:30 p.m.
Head over to the Morris Arboretum for the final days of Circus Week as the fun trains hit the rails. Enjoy the Giver & Take jugglers at 11 a.m. on Saturday, or go any other time to solve the Merrie Little Owl Scavenger Hunt and check out designer birdhouses.
One big last hurrah! Celebrate the weekend in style with Cookie Monster and crew. Fireworks go up after the 8 p.m. Neighborhood Street Party Parade is over. Must have an after-3 p.m. ticket for fireworks.
Use the last school-free moments to spend the afternoon at Franklin Square. Throw some coins into the fountain, grab a bite at Square Burger, play carnival games, ride the carousel, and sink hole-in-ones at Philly-themed mini-golf. From noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday and Monday.
