Summertime can be fun, but it can also be expensive. Thankfully, Philly families have many opportunities to enjoy this time of year without breaking the bank. From splash pads and sprinklers, to outdoor concerts and movies, there is a variety of free or low cost fun to be had.
This week, make crafts at Exton or West Chester's Monkey Fish Toys or your local A.C. Moore. Enjoy Family Fun Night at New Garden Park or The Brandywine Zoo. Or, see one of this week's budget-friendly performances on stage such as Gratz Theater's Beauty and the Beast, Dennis Flyer's Theater's Peter Pan, and Upper Darby Performing Arts Center's Bye Bye Birdie.
To keep up with the latest affordable fun, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest.
