Weekend Picks: First Friday, Movie Night In Clark Park, 2nd Street Festival, ACANA African Festival And More

Enjoy festivals, beer garden fun, outdoor movies and more...

It’s a quintessential summer weekend in Philly — think outdoor movies, block parties, outdoor concerts, beer garden events and so much more.

The weekend starts off with a bevy of free, al fresco movie nights all around town. Clark Park (one of West Philly’s biggest green spaces) kicks off its summer movie series with a free screening of E.T.. as well as activities for youngsters before the film.

In addition to the movie in Clark Park, The Oval+ and Dilworth Park also welcome movie buffs for screenings this Friday night.

On Sunday, the huge 2nd Street Festival returns to Northern Liberties with multiple stages for live music, food and drinks from local vendors, shopping and more.

At Penn’s Landing, the Great Plaza welcomes celebrations of African culture for the fun-filled ACANA African Festival.

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