Things To Do In Northeast Philly That’s Not Franklin Mills or Neshaminy Mall (Part 2)
Pennypack Park Music Festival
Pennypack Park, off of Rhawn Street
Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. And, I guess, supporting imitators is the sincerest form of flattering those they’re imitating. The Pennypack Park Music Festival is the sincerest form of rocking out in Northeast Philadelphia. Every Wednesday for the summer, the park has been holding concerts for free in the park. Some of the acts that I’ve missed includes a Bon Jovi tribute band, a The Who tribute band, a Rolling Stones tribute band, and a Bruce Springstreet tribute band. I went last week to see the Billy Joel tribute band, and it really exceeded my expectations. The music was well done and the band really did rock. I saw croud surfing, people. There are three concerts left, including Supernatual (the Santana tribute band) tomorrow, and in two weeks, Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath tribute bands.
All the concerts are located in Pennypack Park, and they run from 7 PM to around 9-10 PM. They really are a lot of fun. Don’t mind that they’re not the actual bands, and you’ll have a lot of fun.
