The Rundown - Get Outside This Week

The weather is finally turning in our favor - so what better way to enjoy your neighborhood than to get outside, have some fun, and meet some of your neighbors. This is the perfect week as the parks of Pennsport offer you some exciting opportunities to do just that.

Here is a rundown of all the happenings at our beautiful neighborhood parks for the week of 8/5:


Come out for Movie night this Tuesday at 8pm for an outdoor showing of Ghostbusters. Do yourself a favor and bring your favorite snacks and blanket or a chair to enjoy one of the greatest comedies of all time in the friendly confines of Dickinson Square Park.

If you can't make in Tuesday - pick up your favorite produce at the Dickinson Square Park Farmers Market. Held every Sunday from 10am to 2pm, the market features a variety of local goodies and usually a local food truck.


Mayor Michael Nutter will kick off Philadelphia's Night Out Against Crime on Monday at Sacks Playground at 4th and Washington Avenue. The event is in conjunction with National Night Out.

If Ghostbusters isn't your type of flick (I'm sorry to hear that) - head over to Jefferson Square Park (3rd/Washington) and take in an outdoor showing of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Tuesday at 830pm. It's a great chance to sit outside and enjoy Jessica Rab - I mean Roger Rabbit, under the beautiful trees at JSP. Bring your chairs or blankets and some snacks.

If you have kids chomping at the bit to get outside and run around - turn off Dora the Explorer and head over to Jefferson Square Park for KIDZ NITE. Held every Thursday around 630pm (weather permitting), there are a bunch of fun things for the kids (and parents). It's a great time to get let the kids get their sillies out while meeting some neighbors.


Thursday's are a wonderful time in Pennsport. Not only do you have KIDZ NITE at JSP every Thursday in the Summer, but the Mummer Museum offers FREE STRING BANDS UNDER THE STARS as well. Only a block from Jefferson Square Park, the Mummer Museum hosts a new String Band every Thursday in a block party event only Pennsport can give you. Come out for refreshments around 730pm and grab a good seat as the show begins at 8pm. Where can you get some cheap food and beer with some great entertainment for the whole fam damnly? You know the answer - it's Pennsport, baby.

Did I miss anything or have an event coming up? Drop me a line - and I'll updat the post accordingly.
