One of the biggest of those events is the Italian Market Festival happening the weekend of May 16.

9th Street from Fitzwater to Federal will be shut down to traffic for the block party-style celebration.

The festival runs rain or shine on May 16 and 17 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. You can find more information on the Italian Market’s website.

    The South Philly Parents Resource Center will be helping to run the Di Bruno Bros family fun zone. Lots of family friendly performers, crafting for kids, and a moon bounce…all for free! Stop by and say hi.
