Free activities for children in the Delaware Valley

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. Escape the heat with a visit to Franklin Institute during its Community Day or hit the outdoors with a hike at Valley Forge Historic Park or boating adventure on the Schuylkill River.

Get some of these activities on your family calendar and make your July explode with free fun!
