Finally, the sun is coming out this weekend. You can expect (mostly) sunny skies on Saturday and Sunday.
Take advantage of the sunshine and do something fun this weekend. Get outside and check out Shakespeare in Clark Park or the East Passyunk Car Show – both free to attend.
If the weather does turn stormy, we've still got you covered in our weekend events roundup below. There are things to do both indoors and outdoors.
On Saturday and Sunday, shop cat-themed goods, meet Instagram-famous felines and, maybe, take home a new, furry friend.
The event is free to attend, but a $5 donation at the door to the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is suggested.
Catch a performance of "Twelfth Night" for free in Clark Park this weekend. Pack a picnic to enjoy dinner and a show.
For those who need a Shakespeare refresher, in the comedy, a woman disguises herself as a man and countless love triangles pop-up because of her guise.
There will be antique, show, classic and custom cars, plus trucks and motorcycles, on display.
Many restaurants in the neighborhood will also offer $5 deals on food and drink during the car show.
On Saturday night, throw on a toga and go watch one of the funniest movies of all time at the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville.
