Elfreth's Alley in Old City.

Fete Day has been a June tradition on Elfreth's Alley in Old City for more than 75 years. Visitors are invited to take a look inside the 18th century private homes of residents on June 4. The 32 buildings along the historic street were built between the 1720s and 1830s.

Besides tours through the homes, there will be arts & crafts, music, refreshments and Colonial games. Families are also invited to take an 18th century family photo in the alley.

The Elfreth's Alley Museum will be open, too. The museum offers an in-depth look at the lives, lifestyles and livelihoods of ordinary Philadelphians at the time of the city's founding.

Tickets are $10 for children and $25 for adults. However, families can purchase a group ticket for $60.
