Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival, Philadelphia
May 22, 2012 § Leave a comment
My trip back home to Philadelphia was timed very well as I got to catch the annual Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival. Each year, more than 50,000 visitors flood Rittenhouse park area (extends down 6 blocks) to take advantage of the music, food, fashion and arts festival.
The weather was downright gorgeous and even with a 3-month-old in tow (not my kid), we had an absolute blast. It’s so refreshing to walk around, uninhibited, beer-in-hand á la Bourbon Street as the area turns into one enormous outdoor café with restaurant booths from Philly staples (i.e. Di Bruno Bros), Steven Starr restaurants (i.e. El Rey) and yes, Philly’s own, not-yet-opened… Shake Shack! If you are thinking about taking a trip in the spring, you must plan your visit around this event. Unless it happens to rain, then you’re on your own.
