Philadelphia is one of the best places to celebrate the 4th of July because of its rich historical roots. But once you’ve soaked in all the history, head to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway from 20th Street to Eakins Oval to celebrate America’s Birthday. The day-long event on the Parkway is a massive block party packed with local food trucks, interactive games, live entertainment, and more. Check out the family-friendly activities as well as performances from national and local talents on two live music stages. The festival runs from noon to 7 p.m, but hang around in the area afterwards for the Fourth of July Jam Concert and Grand Finale Fireworks that will light up the sky above the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
