After spending much of the Winter cooped up indoors, we could not be more excited about our Summer in the city. While many are talking about where they are going on vacation this Summer, we are excited to enjoy all of the parks, festivals, pop-up venues, and spraygrounds that the city has to offer.
As some friends head “down the shore” for the Fourth of July, I will be working, so we will be enjoying the local festivities instead. With all of the celebrations in the city though, this hardly feels like a sacrifice. There is so much going on that narrowing down our options is the hardest task!
Here are a few local guides to your July 4th in Philadelphia:
uwishunu.com: Hour-By-Hour Guide— a guide that plans every hour of your day for you
MommyPoppins: July GoList— a day-by-day events calendar for your extended weekend with your kids
WelcomeAmerica.com— your guide to getting a free WaWa hoagie and seeing The Roots
VisitPhilly.com: Where to Watch Fireworks— I recommend your roof deck and if you don’t have one, find a friend who does!
Philly.com: Kids Day at Fette Sau and Frankford Hall— free kids food, adult happy hour, The Lara and Joe Show, face-painting, balloon animals, and arts and crafts with Smith Playground!
We are looking forward to having a BBQ, running through a sprinkler, and watching fireworks– not much different from the July Fourths of my beachfront childhood. In addition though, we will be attending some of the special events the city has to offer and look forward to seeing friends there!
Happy 4th of July!
