Have you ever been to East Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia? I haven’t. I have seen the street name but really was not familiar with it besides it’s a city street. Not only is it a city street but it has over 150 small businesses and restaurants. With free 2 hour parking just blocks away and metered parking on street for $0.50 an hour (do the math. Not bad for city parking!!) there is enough packed into this one street to give the whole family something to talk about. I received an invitation for my family and I to check out what they have to offer FOR FAMILIES. I guess they have a Second Saturday for adults and TOMORROW they are debuting Second Saturday for families and they want YOU to check it out…..well, and me.
Hosted by Alphabet Academy, they will be having fun events for your kids throughout the day. Below is a listing of their schedule of events.
With kids’ activities all up and down the street, they also have great deals for moms AND dads all day tomorrow in many of their shops. Check out the list below for many participating stores and restaurants. I love that they have a little something for everyone. The kids can have fun, mom and dad can get pampered or catch up on that long overdue hair cut in peace.
I’m taking my camera tomorrow and can’t wait to share our adventure with you. If you go, make sure you take pictures. I would love for you to share some of your favorites with me.
