Philadelphia, PA ~ ~ October 10-12, 2014
Independence Seaport Museum will host its 3rd Annual Old City Seaport Festival, a weekend-long Festival with Tall Ships, live music, crafts, vendors and activities along the waterfront. The Festival also features great food from some of Philly's food trucks and a beer garden area on the Museum's outdoor 2nd floor balcony to relax and enjoy some refreshments.
The Mystic Whaler will be joining in the fun, with public sails, boat tours, and more. We hope to see you there! For details, visit http://www.phillyseaport.org/seaportfestival. (Note, the 2014 event is not listed there yet!)
