The tempuratures are rising, the days are getting longer and the drinks are getting cheaper; that's right, it's summertime in the city! Philadelphia in the city is a sight to behold and nowhere is that more apparent than in the Center City District.
From Sips, to BBQ and nature demos, the CCD has something for everyone in your family this summer season. Why stay in the house when you don't have to?
The popular districtwide happy hour is back for another summer season! With dozens of participating restaurants and bars, this Sips season is proving to be an unforgettable one (and an affordable one!). Wednesday afternoons from 5pm-7pm, bars and restaurants across the district will be offering $5 cocktails, $4 wine, $3 beer and 1/2 appetizers. Head to an old favorite, or discover a new hangout, from now until August 30th.

Wine pairings, outdoor seating and live music, oh my! Venture over to Sister Cities Park every Thursday from 5pm-8pm for Pairings on the Parkway, a BYOB event featuring live, singer-songwriter style music. For the cherry on top of this sweet weekday cake, Logan Square Cafe will be offering a special grilling menu, and Chaddsford Winery will be present with their own special selection of wines by the glass or bottle. Don't miss it!
Movie lovers rejoice, Dilworth Park is hosting a free Friday movie night! Starting July 21st, every Friday at 8:30pm is Dilworth and chill; hang out, relax and enjoy their selection of summer films on the big screen (blankets and chairs not included)!

The Center City District has the summer down for the whole family! Grow Up Great is a free weekly event for children 3+ and up at the Sister Cities Park on the Ben Franklin Parkway.
