Many Philly families are tired of the cold, snow and ice. So, as we prepare to shovel out from the biggest snowfall of the season, let's look on the bright side. There are some definite signs of spring now that March is here.
Daylight Savings Time begins this weekend and Spring consignment sales are in full force. Longwood Gardens hosts its Family Community Read highlighting the great kapok tree and the PHS Flower Show delights visitors with breath-taking garden displays for its final weekend.
Many historical celebrations are happening in Pennsylvania this weekend too. Charter Day, the day that King Charles II of England granted William Penn the land that is now Pennsylvania, is being celebrated throughout the state. Brandywine Battlefield in Chadds Ford, Washington Crossing Historical Park in Washington Crossing, Graeme Park in Horsham and Pennsbury Manor in Morrisville all have free, family-friendly events on March 8.
If you are looking to acquaint your kids with the arts this weekend, introduce your children to musical theater at the PNC Grow Up Great event at the Kimmel Center or cultivate a love for classical music at the Kennett Symphony of Chester County's Annual Children's Concert and Instrument Zoo.
