Philly families have lots to celebrate this July as the city comes alive with summertime fun. It all starts with a bang, and a boom, and a sparkle and a sizzle as Philly parents and kids celebrate America's birthday. There are plenty of free events that acknowledge the occasion. From free admission to museums to free parties, there is something for everyone in the family.

Later in the month, schedule time to watch a free outdoor movie or listen to a free concert under the stars. Avoid the summer slide by keeping young minds sharp with a trip to Big Blue Marble Bookstore or Doylestown Bookshop for a storytime session or check out educational programming opportunities at your local library in the city or in the suburbs. Dive into scientific exploration by climbing through a giant heart or experiencing the power of air at Franklin Institute. Ready for some fresh air? Head into nature by hiking the trails at Valley Forge Historic Park, discovering facts about the honey bee, or searching for backyard bugs.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your calendar, text some friends, and get ready for free July fun in Philly!
