What To Do This Memorial Day Weekend in Philadelphia

 
Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 28 this year, and as everyone knows, an added day to the weekend means additional opportunities for fun. We’ve rounded up the best events going on in Philadelphia this weekend, so skip the shore and soak up the sun with a cold beer in hand in our beautiful city.
 
Wednesday, May 23 through Monday, May 28
FDR Park
Philadelphia’s traveling beer garden has returned, and for the last week of May it will be at FDR Park in South Philly.

Penn’s Landing
It’s going to be a party on the waterfront all weekend long as some magnificent tall ships dock on the Delaware.
