The 6th annual Philly Naked Bike ride trekked 10 miles throughout the city beginning at Penn Treaty Park on Saturday September 6, 2014.
Hundreds of folks, both clothed and naked, hopped on their bikes, skateboards, and even rollerblades, for this yearly human parade.
Abi ReimoldOn Thursday September 4, Dilworth Plaza was re-opened as Dilworth Park after two years of construction. The renovation made the SEPTA Market-Frankford and Broad Street lines accessible by elevator and created a commuter-friendly public space. The park now features a fountain and a cafe on the south side of City Hall. As part of a day-long celebration, different dance and music acts from around the city performed. Visitors frolicked in a fountain which will turn ice skating rink in the winter. The next month is filled with activities in the space including movie nights, happy hours and concerts. A schedule is available on Center City DistrictParks website.

Diner en Blanc is a tradition that began in Paris over 25 years ago. Participants dress in all white attire and bring their own gourmet picnic.
On Thursday night 3,500 people attended Philadelphia’s version of the event. The location is kept a secret until an hour before the dinner. The concept encourages locals to adopt a new appreciation for an area of the city. This year’s event was located on the first three blocks of South Broad Street.
“It’s important for people to come together, I think events like this promote world peace,” said Elan Elkai, 26 of Philadelphia.

The 2014 Annual Geek Awards were held on Saturday August 16, 2014 at The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University.
Geeks from the Philadelphia region, who are some of the most innovative and forward-thinking, put away their pocket protectors, microscopes and game goggles to attend the yearly event at the appropriately scientific museum. One attendee told me that her childhood vacations were spent inside the walls of the museum and it shaped her career path as a wildlife biologist.
The evening began with a cocktail party and guests were able to wander throughout the museum. The Academy pulled out all the stops and their guides mingled and entertained the guests with live snakes, lizards, a hedgehog and a jungle nymph. After 90 minutes of munching on treats from 12th Street Catering, and enjoying Yards Beer, the guests excitedly entered the auditorium for the 2-hour awards ceremony.
