Weekend Picks: First Weekend For The Oval+, Movie Night At Dilworth Park, Islamic Heritage Fest And More

Check out festivals, beer gardens, movie nights, concerts and more...

Get ready for an exciting couple of days, Philly!

It’s a weekend full of free, outdoor movie nights in parks and public spaces across the city. The movies start off with Friday night screenings at The Oval+ (Clueless) and Dilworth Park (Beauty and the Beast) and continue in Old City, Mt. Airy and more throughout the weekend.

On the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, The Oval+ — a favorite summertime-only attraction — is now open for the season. This weekend, The Oval+ brings a huge public art installation, a free movie night, games, food, drinks (in a tree-shaded beer garden), quizzo and more to the public space.

On Saturday, the Islamic Heritage Festival hits Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing to celebrate Islamic culture with performances, food and shopping.

Be sure to follow Uwishunu on Twitter and Instagram for updates throughout the weekend.
