Cardboard City on the Parkway!
- Kids + Family
FREE | Registration Not Required
Ideal for ages 8+.
In celebration of the 100th birthday of our city's grand Benjamin Franklin Parkway, help us build a gigantic cardboard city! Stop by any time between 4pm - 7pm to try your hand at designing and building a skyscraper, a park, a row of houses, a school, a factory, some vehicles – or more! Then add your creations to our growing skyline and watch the cardboard city grow. We’ll post a time-lapse of the entire event on our Facebook page afterwards so you can watch how your creations add to the final cityscape.
