We’ve got fun planned across the city this weekend, including the kickoff of the Philadelphia International Unity Cup! Watch one of the 25+ soccer games happening for free Friday through Sunday.
That’s not all: you can also grow a green thumb at the Horticulture Center, step back in time at Deco on the Delaware, or visit the new Baxter Trail.
Unity Cup Kickoff
All are invited to help kick off the 2018 Philadelphia International Unity Cup season! Beginning at 6:30 p.m., Colombia will face off against Haiti during the first match of the year. Next, Mexico and Honduras will battle starting at 8:30 p.m. As always, tournament games are free and open for all soccer fans to watch.
Growing a Bountiful Fall Harvest Workshop

Head over this Sunday: the trail is only open through Labor Day!
