Start making your plans now, because the fun times are just a few hours away.

It's fireworks at more than one location. It's live music all over town. But the best thing about Welcome America? It's here starting this weekend!

The festival starts Saturday with Go 4th And Learn, promoting literacy.

Philly At The Movies takes films all over town. "Rocky" plays the Art Museum Saturday night, but not all films are classics.

Something new this year: The Mural Arts Program's Cops And Kids. Seventeenth and Montgomery will get a new mural, and kids there will also learn how police investigate crime.

All your favorites are back. "Wednesday Night Out" celebrates the Avenue of the Arts.

July 4th is the big ceremony at Independence Hall. The concert on the Parkway stars Grammy winner John Legend.

Boyz II Men will headline a Penn's Landing concert Saturday night July 5th, and "A Taste Of Philadelphia" will be there that weekend.
