Weekend Planner: July 29, 2016

Top Picks for This Weekend

The new release in the Harry Potter series drops at 12midnight Sat., and area bookstores plan to celebrate with fans during release parties: join a costume contest and enter giveaways at DE’s Bethany Beach Books; come dressed up to the bash at Philly’s Big Blue Marble Bookstore; test your trivia skills and enjoy themed treats at PA’s Doylestown Bookshop; and share your fave Potter memories on the Muggle Wall at Moorestown, NJ’s Banres & Noble. Head here for a full list of parties.




Take your family on an interactive, time-traveling adventure into the past Sat. & Sun. Explore an entire village as it was centuries ago, packed with interpreters, crafts and trades like basket-weaving and blacksmithing during Hands-on History at Cape May, NJ’s Historic Cold Spring Village. Kids can get their 'Pastport' stamped for each activity they complete, and redeem it for a prize.



 Got moves? Show them off alongside hundreds of other dancers of all abilities Sat. during the FREE Dancing in the Park & Food Truck Festival, where workshops on various dance styles are taught by pros and the crowd learns a routine to be performed flash mob-style at Newark, DE’s Glasgow Park.
