Get ready for summer vacation! June in Philly brings festivals for Juneteenth, Father's Day, ripe strawberries, and maybe even some early fireworks. 

School's winding down, the weather's heating up, and our June events calendar is bursting at the seams.  Mid-month, Philly celebrates Juneteenth with a massive parade in West Philly and a Block Party hosted by the African American Museum.  Don't forget to don your rainbow colors all month long and check out Philly's Pride month events, including a Family Pride Day at the Franklin Institute.  Also this June, The Philadelphia Flower Show takes root at FDR Park, Kidchella returns to Smith Playground, and Doc McStuffins sets up shop at Please Touch. 

Find more top May fun on our lists of Free Outdoor Movies in Philly This Summer With Kids, the Best Sprinkler Parks and Splash Pads near Philly, and our Summer Activity Guide for Philly Kids.
