Weekday Picks for Philly Kids: Parades, Music, Strawberries May 30-June 3

Despite the short work/school week ahead, there is no shortage of educational experiences this week. To start, teach young ones about Memorial Day at the Independence Seaport Museum's Memorial Day ceremony. Then, head to the National Constitution Center's Free Admission Day to share the story of how our country became free and the reasons why we honor those who have fought for our nation.

Once Memorial Day ceremonies and parades are through, explore outdoor fun such as carnival rides at St. Paul's Church or live music in Downtown West Chester. For further excitement, plan an overnight adventure at The Philadelphia Zoo or Penn Museum, or, relax with baby while checking out a movie at Bryn Mawr Institute or PFS Roxy Theater.

Stay current with the latest happenings by following us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. Enjoy the week ahead!
