With news today, it’s easy to miss things that happen, even locally here in your neighborhood. #PhillyMayorThisWeek recaps five moments from the past seven days you might’ve missed.


1. Mayor Kenney attended the annual Labor Day parade with workers, City officials, and community activists.

2. The Mayor encouraged everyone to wear green to cheer on the Eagles as they opened their season as world champions; the Birds later went on to beat the Atlanta Falcons 18-12.

Love it. Tomorrow, be sure to wear green to help us turn the town green as we cheer on the Eagles as they kickoff the season at the Linc! Go Birds!

The emails are short and won't flood your inbox. Plus, sometimes, they'll include funny videos from the Mayor himself.
