The month of May provides perfectly mild weather, the kind of weather that puts even the grumpiest toddler or moodiest teen in a pleasant, hopeful mood. Similarly, Philly parents are sure to be delighted with both the weather and the free (or nearly free) events that can keep the entire family entertained. From playground trips to picnics at city and suburban parks, families can make lasting memories while being budget-friendly.
We have rounded up some of our favorite economical options including free admission festivals, nature exploration opportunities, musical experiences, and deeply discounted museum discovery. Of course, we can't forget about Mom so be sure to carve out some time mid-May to celebrate Mother's Day by making an art project together or hiking through scenic Lorimer Park. At the end of the month, it's time for the red, white, and blue! Honor those who have served at local Memorial Day parades in Warminster, Downingtown, or West Grove.
Free fun is always best with family and friends, so gather up the crew and get ready to entertain on a budget!
