Memorial Day Weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. And, boy, does the City of Brotherly Love have some fun in store for Philly families! A horse show and country fair, festivals, patriotic fun, outdoor movies, amazing concerts, two newly certified autism center venues: a zoo and an amusement park to explore, and of course trips down the shore...this summer holiday kickoff is ripe with possibilities.
Start off the weekend by experiencing the excitement of the Devon Horse Show complete with horse competitions, amusement rides, and traditional country fair eats. (Don't forget to buy some Devon fudge.) Then, head to the waterfront to see fireworks and the tall ships sail into Penn's Landing or visit Morris Arboretum for the grand opening of the Garden Railway Display. While nearby historic Philadelphia, hear the Declaration of Independence read by History Makers, learn stories at the Once Upon A Nation Storytelling Benches, or watch a military demonstration at Signers' Garden. Carve out some time to remember those serving our country with a parade in Lansdale, Radnor, Kennett, Warminster, Media, or Collegeville.
