Welcome to My Neighborhood

In recent years, I haven’t got caught up in all the Welcome America events that take place aorund the 4th of July.

But Matt and I decided to take a lok at the events schedule last night, and there’s something interesting slated for this evening that I’ll be able to stop and see right along my walk home from work:

A Day At The Fair
4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Rittenhouse Square

Grab your family and follow the stilt-walkers on a journey through July 4th celebrations from 1776 to 2006. Wrap your mouth around a giant Quiznos hoagie and other great food and entertainment to honor our past, celebrate our present and look toward our future while participating in activities that have stood the test of time, including performances by a Dixieland band, storytelling, arts & crafts, and good, old-fashioned carnival games like pie-eating contests, sack races, and tug-of-war.

I’ll be there (although the phallic nature of that Quizno’s description might keep me away from that refreshments stand).

Will you?
