    Here’s a look at some family-friendly activities going on this weekend.


    Watch Philly’s own Taney Dragons on Friday

    In case you’ve been under a rock, climb on out so you can catch the excitement as the city sends our very own Taney Dragons into the Little League World Series. You can catch the game on the big screen outside at SCH Academy in Chestnut Hill (which is proud to cheer on three students on the team) at 3 p.m. in the courtyard outside the Willow Grove Campus. I have no doubt that the game will be shown in many locations all over town. Go Dragons!!!

    Friday and Saturday: “Annie” vs. “Men in Black”

    It’s the final weekend showdown for outdoor movies in Mt. Airy. Friday night’s showing is “Annie,” and if that one’s a bust for your family, don’t worry. The sun’ll come out the next day for “Men in Black.” Friday night’s showing is at the Lovett Library, with designer donuts on tap. Saturday’s show is at the Trolley Car Diner. Both movies are outside under the stars with blankets and chairs supplied by you. Show time is 8:30 p.m. 

    Caribbean Party at the Pier on Sunday

    Enjoy the music, food, and festival atmosphere at the Caribbean Festival on Sunday from noon to 8 p.m.. As part of PECO’s multicultural series, the celebration will be on the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing. 

    Cézanne all weekend long

    Take the family to do Cézanne-inspired activities at the Barnes Foundation. Picnic on the parkway with apples and still life to spur creativity. Families can use the Solving Still Life gallery kit to hone their art detective skills. Free drop-in tickets at the front desk but admission to the collection gallery is not included. Friday, August 15 from 5 to 7 p.m., Saturday, August 16 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Sunday, August 17 from 1 to 3 p.m.
