Philadelphia loves the 4th of July

If you could be any where in world on 4th July weekend, where would it be? Philadelphia you say, I agree.

Unfortunately, someone had this bright idea to go to Boston that weekend, so I will miss out on some of the festivities.

However to make sure you won't miss out, betweeen June 28 to July 6th Sunoco Welcome America has a host of events going and the best part, its all free! Here are some of the highlights: fireworks shows, free concerts by John Legend and Boyz II Men, a Latin Fiesta and Grammy Award-winning Peter Nero and the Philly Pops.
