Philadelphia was the birthplace of our freedom. The Declaration of Independence was signed here. It was our nation’s first Capitol.

Philly puts on the biggest celebration in the country because of it and Wawa is our local sponsor.
(Another local chain… Also, if you don’t know what Wawa is, you aren’t Philly)

We put out all the stops during the 4th of July festivities.


A Parade, huge concerts with bigwig acts, taste of Philly at Penn’s Landing from all of our world renowned eateries, an ice cream festival, the Philadelphia Pops orchestra concert, and most importantly fireworks.

The fireworks extravaganza.

No other city can compete with us on this special day.

There are activities every single day leading up to the 4th of July.

Have a blast everyone. No pun intended.
