Join MetroKids this Saturday, July 16 for Philly's largest one-day festival.

The free Global Fusion Festival at Penn's Landing in Phila. features entertainment from noon till night, with R&B singers (including Grammy award-winning Estelle), rappers, hip-hop artists and Latin musicians.

Head to Children's Carnival City at the Festival for free family activities. Take hip-hop and salsa dancing lessons, have your face painted and interact with animals from the Philadelphia Zoo on Wheels. There will also be storytelling and a traveling history museum. Look for MetroKids in Children's Carnival City, where you can pick up a copy our July issue, enter for a chance to win tickets to The Franklin Institute and make a kids' craft.
