Philadelphia Marathon This Weekend: Street Cl...

Philadelphia Marathon This Weekend: Street Closures in Queen Village South Street Headhouse District just sent this message out over email and we thought we'd share it since some streets in Queen Village will be closed on Saturday and Sunday: "Just a quick reminder that the Philadelphia Marathon and Half Marathon are this Saturday & Sunday, November 18 & 19, and a portion of both the races run through South Street and the surrounding neighborhood. The annual event attracts thousands of runners and supporters to the area and is a great opportunity for our businesses to greet visitors. The race will close South Street from Front to 7th Street, as well as Front Street from Washington Ave to South and Lombard from 6th to 13th Street on Saturday and Sunday Morning from about 5am- after the final racers clear. (our neighborhood is early in the race, so it will clear earier than later, both days.) The city will enforce “no-parking” regulations for all vehicles in the area. All vehicles along the Philadelphia Marathon route will be relocated starting at 2 a.m." Learn more about the event and street closures here: https://philly.curbed.com/2017/11/15/16656332/philadelphia-marathon-2017-route-street-closures
