To Do: Street Games Philly 2011

Hopscotch, box ball, jump rope—exercise the good old fashioned way

Miss the good ol’ days of pick-up games in the schoolyard? Revisit your childhood at Street Games Philly 2011, a free fitness festival full of four-square, double-dutch, relay races and more. Only kids ages eight to 18 and their parents can participate, but anyone can volunteer to help teach the rules and offer their words of wisdom on the value of nutrition and fitness. There will also be free health screenings and info booths providing personal and community safety tips. Professional athletes will be on hand to sign autographs and, of course, play with the kids.

FREE, September 17, 10:30 a.m., Park West Town Center, 52nd Street & Jefferson Street.
