See you all at the Parade and Fireworks on Wednesday!

    This Northeast Philly neighborhood has the best 103-year-old Fourth of July celebration you've never heard of | Perspective
    If you regularly celebrate Independence Day where the Declaration of Independence was ratified, you've likely done Wawa Welcome America. And rightly so. The city's official event features seven program-packed days full of concerts, fireworks, free museums, and hoagies. It's a great way for tourists and locals alike to see some of the best Philly has to offer.

Blockbuster Video sign rewinds time in South Philly

The dozens of Philadelphia area locations were among them. The Blockbuster at 3300 Aramingo Avenue became a 7-Eleven. The 6810 Rising Sun Avenue shop turned into a Smoker's Zone. 7700 Crittenden Street no longer sold videotapes, but eyeglasses as a Visionworks.

This article has 3 other Philadelphia locations (Show)

On the corner of 24th Street and Passyunk Avenue, among the food trucks, SEPTA buses, and passersby, there stands a 78-foot high yellow and blue sign shaped like a videocassette tape with one word: Blockbuster.

    Blockbuster Video sign rewinds time in South Philly
    There is a spot in South Philadelphia that is an anachronism. It's a relic of a recent past that represents a tradition no longer relevant to most. It's an indicator of a simpler era where a night staying home began with an outside destination.
