We’ve reached week 12 of the “Phanatic Around Town” photo submission contest. Continue sending in your photos and remember, winners receive free Philly baseball gear. Check out last week’s winners after the jump.
Week Twelve’s featured Phanatic Around Town location: National Constitution Center
This week’s featured statue is the National Constitution Center’s “Philanatic” statue and the deadline to submit your photo is Monday, July 5th.
Wawa Welcome America is in full swing this week with movie screenings, three free concerts, two fireworks shows, an ice cream festival, and much, much more through July 5th. Located in the heart of Historic Philadelphia, the National Constitution Center will be right in the center of much of the week’s action.
Currently on display at the center is Ancient Rome & America, a world premiere exhibition exploring the links between the two republics. Ancient Rome & America spand more than 8,000 square feet organized into five distinct galleries and is available through August 1st.
Whether checking out the Rome exhibition, celebrating Dietz and Watson Hot Dog Day at the Visitor Center or enjoying the sounds of Peter Nero and the Philly Pops performing at Independence Hall, stop by the National Constitution Center and snap a photo with the “Philanatic” Phanatic statue (which has a new location: inside the center, to the right of the gift shop).
For even more Phanatic fun, head to Penn’s Landing on Friday, July 2nd for the Philadelphia Orchestra free concert featuring a special guest conductor — none other than the actual Phillie Phanatic! The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and is followed by a spectacular fireworks display over the Delaware River.
