A family sits in lounge chairs while looking at the glowing lights at Spruce Street Harbor Park.

Starting at noon on June 25, Spruce Street Harbor Park will host a party celebrating year three along the Delaware River Waterfront. The birthday bash will feature a full day of free family-friendly activities.

Park guests can create flower crowns with 7Textures, watch Black Cat Balloons construct balloon animals, get their faces painted by JCW Concepts or sit for a digital caricature by Digital Black Smith.

The day's activities don't end there, however. Beginning at 2 p.m., there will be a petting zoo provided by the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and a stilt walker and tight-wire station set up by Philly Circus. At 3 p.m., Cotton Candy Circus Acts will perform hoop tricks.

Throughout the entire day, live music will be performed by a handful of local musicians.

After so many activities, families may need to refuel or lay down. Luckily, more hammocks and chairs have been added to the park this year and there is a range of sweet and savory food options.
