Do Something: Porch Hop

West Philly Porchfest returns with a day of concerts on stoops throughout the neighborhood. Plus: Party with Connor Barwin, climb aboard the Moshulu for kids, and more ways to be an awesome citizen this week.

Every Monday we round up a handful of fun ways to get involved throughout the week to make your city better. Have ideas for upcoming events? Email tips here.

The Philadelphia Citizen will only publish thoughtful, civil posts. We want to be a communal space. But that doesn’t mean you have a First Amendment right to be an idiot. Send us an insulting, offensive and/or wildly off-topic comment and not only will we refrain from posting it -- we will laugh at you before we hit delete.
