Whether you follow politics or not, there is no escaping it this week since Philadelphia hosts the Democratic National Convention. As media, politicians, and citizens of the nation attend the convention and visit the sites that Philly has to offer, be aware that traffic and wait times in and around the city could be longer.
However, hosting the convention does has its perks for us locals. The National Constitution Center along with 6 other locations throughout the city present PoliticalFest, a one-of-a-kind festival showcasing our country's political history and government in a non-partisan way.
On the other hand, consider taking this opportunity to enjoy the suburbs and all they offer. This week, families can enjoy good old-fashioned carnival fun at Kimberton Fair, Midway Fire Company Carnival, or Cochranville Fire Company Carnival. Create art at Darlington Art Center, Monkey Fish Toys, or a Michael's near you. Visit the Bucks County Children's Museum for its Summer Nights event featuring the Sound of Music by Bucks County Playhouse Youth Company or take a ride to Winterthur for its Terrific Tuesdays children's program.
Putting all politics aside, certainly everyone can vote for a fun-filled week ahead!
