The skies may be overcast, but that’s no reason to have a dull Thursday night.

For the first time ever, the Callowhill neighborhood welcomes Night Market for a food truck-filled evening of eats, drinks and live performances — rain or shine. While you’re out there checking out the Night Market scene, be sure to Tweet about and Instagram the scene and the eats you enjoy and tag your photos with #visitphilly #NightMkt.

At Grays Ferry Crescent, the Schuylkill Banks outdoor movie nights continue for week two with a free screening of The Wizard of Oz.

Pizza Brain and Little Baby’s Ice Cream team up for their weekly Third Thursdee event, and this month are hosting the event with La Colombe — look forward to coffee-centric pizza and free cocktails.
