Volume 18: Issue 22 5/3/19
What’s Hot and Coming Soon?
If you guessed summer, you’re right, but around the office here at Compass Philly headquarters, the phrase ‘coming soon’ conjures up different connotations. It’s what happens when we ‘drop a prop’ so to speak.
Pre-marketing is one of the most effective communications that I can do to help sell your home. The idea of underscoring pent-up anticipation is nothing new –
from Hollywood releasing blockbuster trailers, manufacturers wooing thousands of people to get excited about a revolutionary car with a
lead time of two years, and top fashion brands previewing a
Happening all day on the Parkway – it’s the culmination event of the Phila. Science Festival. Expect a family-friendly Science Superhero Show, a performance by BalletX and find out what happens when liquid nitrogen heats up in a trashcan. Grab some tasty snacks from awesome food trucks including Nick’s Roast Beef, Lil’ Pop Shop and Deke’s. Festivities and events are free. More information, map and vidshere.
The South Street Spring Festival 5/4/19
It spans over 12 city blocks and it’s the perfect thing to hit right after the Science Carnival on the Parkway (if you are looking for an exhausting dual-festival day, that is.) Expect amazing music, food, drinks, make & take crafts for kids, and other really cool vendors between 2nd and 8th. Pro Tip: Leave time for the Brauhaus Schmitz Maifest Soiree (7th/South Sts). It’s the perfect place to take awesome snaps for Instagram – maybe friends will think you went to Germany! More info here.
Chinese Lantern Festival
It happens nightly from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. You may have seen the spectacular, colorful lights at 6th and Race Sts last year – now this fun, interactive exhibit is back. Tickets are $20 and under and can be purchased online. I really like taking the kids to show them the creative artistry from another culture. We also like to hit the mini golf at Franklin Square too. SquareBurger is amazing. My kids love the signature ‘Cake Shake’ which is made with TastyKake Butterscotch Krimpets®. Do you dare hit three festivals in one day? That would be “hilarious.”
Semama Mexican Through 5/5/19
On Sunday, kids can make magical “Alebrijes” creatures at the Barnes Foundation – part of PECO’s “Free First Sunday.” Also, at Teatro Esperanza, listen to Mexican classical composers with influences ranging from Aztec roots to today’s modern melodies.
