Whether it’s a barbeque, a firework show, a parade, or even a concert, there are tons of things to do this holiday weekend in our area. Having trouble deciding how to spend your holiday weekend? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Here are a few things going this weekend that you may be interested in.
1. Explore America’s History
What better way to celebrate America than by exploring its rich history. A few Philadelphia museums are offering free trips through history. On Saturday July 2, the National Constitution Center and Powel House are offering free admission all day. On Sunday July 3, the Philadelphia Museum of Art will be offering free admission, as well as a few others. For a full list of the Museums offering free admission go to visitphilly.com.
2. Firework Shows
Let’s face it, it wouldn’t be the 4th of July without fireworks. Firework displays will be going on all weekend all over the area. Locally Washington Township’s Fireworks Spectacular will be on July 3rd beginning at 7:30 pm. There will be entertainment and food vendors leading up to the firework display. Many areas in South Jersey will be having their own firework shows so visit your city’s website for start times. Philly and areas by the shore have a weekend filled of fireworks, click here for a full list of areas and start times.
Of course Philadelphia is having their July 4thIndependence Day Parade, but if you don’t feel like traveling all the way to Philly and dealing with traffic, there is a parade happening right in your backyard. Pitman is having their July 4th Parade beginning and 9:55 am. The Pitman Freedom Race is taking place right before the parade, which means it should be a fun time for you and the family.
Country fans have something to cheer about this holiday weekend. Tim McGraw is coming to Wildwood for a concert on the beach on July 4th. He will kick off the Wildwood Celebrate American event at 8 pm and his performance will be followed by the fireworks. Tickets are still available.
If all these activities aren’t up your alley, you can always stick to the classic backyard barbeque with friends and family.
Happy 4th from all of us here at Rowan Radio!
