Top Picks for This Weekend
Throwback Thursday! This Old–Fashioned Picnic on Sat. at Philly’s Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion revives the Victorian era through magic shows, scavenger hunts, croquet, ring toss and kid-fave treats. Before you leave, be sure to dress up in period garb for a photo op.
The family canine will dig this: On Fri., the FREE NarBark Dog Parade at Narberth, PA’s Haverford & Forest Avenues lets local pups strut their stuff (in costume!) while they parade through the streets with their human pals. Celeb judges will award prizes to dogs with the most memorable duds, from the funniest to the fanciest.
Join the fight against childhood cancer and stop by FREE Alex's "Original" Lemonade Stand on Sat. at Wynnewood, PA’s Penn Wynne Elementary School, where Alex Scott hosted her annual stand.
