With one week of school routine under the belts of many Philly families, it is time to savor some family time this weekend. Thankfully, there are plenty of choices that can be found in our event calendar. First off, there are a multitude of festivals featuring everything from fungi fun at the Mushroom Festival in Kennett Square, to art appreciation at Doylestown Art Festival, to historical fun at Chadds Ford Days. Train lovers in the family won't be disappointed. West Chester Railroad savors the last bit of summer during its Summer Picnic Train. Colebrookdale Railroad takes passengers to a vintage baseball game while folks at Greenbank Station can step back in time to Civil War days. Best yet, Thomas and Friends are riding the rails at Morris Arboretum all weekend long.
Don't forget to celebrate Grandparents' Day on Sunday. Treat grandma and grandpa to brunch at Franklin Square, or let them take the kids to visit a museum such as the National Museum of American Jewish History, or to Lorimer Park for a nature scavenger hunt.
With such a jam-packed event calendar, be sure to filter by age, tags, and location. Have a great weekend!
