Wawa Welcome America Festivities Kick In To High Gear Over Next Two Days
Get Breaking News First
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Welcome America bandwagon keeps rolling. Sunday’s events promise to satisfy almost any appetite.
The fun didn’t end with last night’s fireworks over the Delaware. Penn’s Landing’s the place to be today for treats for the eyes and ears. The Super Scooper All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival dishes up frozen treats from more than 20 vendors for just $7. Proceeds benefit efforts to lick pediatric leukemia.
Then it’s an afternoon family concert headlined by Disney Channel star Emily Osment — and it won’t cost you a penny to take in the tunes.
The day’s events are topped off with a musical feast as Peter Nero leads the Philly Pops in a free concert an Independence Hall. Seating’s first come, first served; you may want to bring a blanket or lawn chair.
Then, tomorrow, the celebration wraps up with a bang — as the Roots headline the Fourth of July Jam on the Parkway followed by fireworks.
