South Street Spring Festival celebrates the season with music and food
The South Street Spring Festival is back Saturday, with three stages, eight performance areas, 40 bands, 30 restaurants and bars, 100 vendors and a two-story-tall May Pole with 50-foot ribbons. They’re going big this year.
South Street Headhouse District expects “tens of thousands” to pack South Street between Front and Eighth streets from 11 .am. to 8 p.m. Philadelphia Magic Gardens’ ART/GAGE (1020 South St.) will be on hand with community art projects, and bar/restaurant Brauhaus Schmitz (718 South St.) will host a Mai Fest with German food, beer, music and costumed dancers.
There will also be a “heroes zone” honoring the American Red Cross, the police and fire departments, the coast guard and others.
