Thank you!

Thank you so much for these past years. Your site has always been very informative, and invaluable to the community. I do hope that Nexdoor will be keeping some of your format intact since much of their focus is not only very neighbourhood specific, but seems to be primarily personal posts, as opposed to news, events, listings, crimewatch, etc...that I have always turned to your site for. Thanks so much again for all the work you've done for the community. Cheers, and best of luck with your new ventures!

Currently, there is no change in schedule to the concert or fireworks based on weather forecasts. The City and partners are closely monitoring the weather and the potential for any hazardous conditions to approach the parkway. Please be aware and cautious of wet conditions. #july4thPhilly
