Weekend Planner: May 19, 2017
Family-fun events and activities in Philadelphia, the suburbs, South Jersey and Delaware for May 19, 2017- May 21, 2017
Top Picks for This Weekend
Philly's got no shortage of quirky sights; the FREE Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby & Arts Festival Sat. at Trenton St. & Susquehanna Ave. is a must-see. The 3-mile urban obstacle course teems with wacky, handmade floats that culminate in a messy mud-pit "splashdown." On the sidelines artists put their creativity on display.
Motor over to DE's Wilmington Grand Prix Fri.-Sun. on Market Street for a full lineup of FREE family fun, including a barbecue, live music, street festival, community expo on Rodney Square, demos and a post-race party at the Delaware Art Museum's sculpture garden.
Get all your ducks in a row just in time for the Rubber Ducky Regatta on Sun., where hundreds of them float down Neshaminy Creek at Warminster, PA's Kemper Park to compete for a cash prize. Get there early and bring lunch for the "Just Ducky" family picnic. While there is a small fee to sponsor a duck, the event is FREE to spectators.
