Also, out in the 'burbs, Restaurant Week will begin. Check out our roundup of events below.
Spend Saturday at the new Cherry Street Pier. Phila Flea Markets' first pop-up at the mixed-use space will open early, at 8 a.m.
Around 60 vendors from the Tri-State Area will sell a variety of items, including antique furniture, vintage jewelry and clothing, artwork and pottery.
Saturday, a block party will take over 11th Street, from Fitzwater to Catharine. There will be beer from The Alchemist, Neshaminy Creek, Tröegs and other popular breweries, as well as a large selection of cider and some wine.
The all-day event, which is both pet-friendly and family-friendly, will also feature live music.
