For second year, Temple joins in Philly Free Streets on North Broad
Temple’s event will include health screenings, wellness activities, signups for job training, dancing in the street and more.
For the second year in a row, Temple University is joining the City of Philadelphia as a partner in Philly Free Streets, the daylong summertime event that closes Broad Street to traffic and becomes a block party from City Hall north to Butler Street.
This year’s Philly Free Streets event on Temple’s Main Campus will be bigger and better, combining the university’s many community resources, including health screenings and job training, with fun and festivities, such as paint-by-numbers on adirondack chairs for the Temple Community Garden, face painting, arts and crafts and a DJ.
Relive last year’s Philly Free Streets through photos, and don’t miss this year’s event on Saturday, Aug. 3 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
