As usual, there’s lots to see and do (and taste) this weekend for Philadelphia locals and visitors alike.

Cheer on the athletes at the 73rd annual Dad Vail Regatta today and tomorrow, pick up some incredible student art at PAFA’s 110th annual Student Exhibition and enjoy the season’s first Taste of The Belle Friday river cruise, complete with food, music and sensational views of the Philadelphia skyline.

Rain or shine, head to the Italian Market with an appetite for its annual wildly popular street festival, taking over 9th Street Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to take in some theater (the companies are in the final shows of their seasons!) and don’t forget to leave time for shopping.
