summer in philly

I love summers in Philadelphia. Over the past decade the amount of summer free outdoor events and venues has multiplied.

This past Wednesday we went to a concert in Pastorius Park in Chestnut Hill, though we missed the free Philadelphia Orchestra concert in Clark Park the next day.

And this weekend we're torn between the Manayunk Arts Festival, the West Oak Lane Jazz and Arts Festival, tall ships down at Penn's Landing, and the Penn's Landing Irish Festival. We ended up spending the afternoon today in Manayunk.

Next week Laurel's mother will come to visit for a couple of week, which will coincide with all the week long Welcome America! festivities.

If any of you are planning to be in Philly over the summer, let us know. We'd love to show off our city and direct you toward some of our great cultural resources.
