Early Warning: Welcome America! and Taste of Philadelphia

Last week details of the Wawa Welcome America festivities were announced. Each year the events like Taste of Philadelphia bring thousands of visitors from the greater Philly area to celebrate July 4th.

This year, from June 29-July 1, Taste of Philadelphia returns to Penn’s Landing bringing with it restaurants and a special section for food trucks along the Chestnut St. Bridge. The event is free and vendors will be serving up small plates for just a few bucks.
