This Friday-Sunday bring the whole family out to the Independence Seaport Museum (211 S. Columbus Blvd). Between the quaint neighborhoods of Old City and Queen Village, the 2nd annual Seaport Festival is a weekend long adventure that will showcase Tall Ships, arts and crafts, live music, Philly food trucks and other family activities on the Delaware waterfront. Don’t miss the ‘Parade of Boats’ on Friday October 11th from 5-7pm, as they arrive from Penn’s Landing.
You can join in the parade by purchasing tickets to be aboard these ships. Or watch for free at the landing. On Saturday, don’t miss the Pirate Battles, as ships shoot canons back and forth to one another on the river.
