Nothing beats a South Philly block party.

It’s finally here. While most people back up the car and head down the shore or up to the mountains for the Fourth of July, the tried and true Philadelphians hang at home and bask in the glory that is the neighborhood block party. Does it get any better than taking over the street (legally, we hope), rolling out the grills, busting open the fire hydrant and enjoying a few suds? In a word: NOPE!

Throw in a bounce house or two and you get a pretty good idea why the Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence in the first place.

Are you heading/hosting a block party this weekend? Tag your Instagram posts with #PhillyScape and we just might feature it in a roundup next week! Thanks again to @cruicej for the awesome shot. Be safe and have fun this holiday weekend.
