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.
