Happy summer! 

For an oceanfront party: From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., join historians, crafters and fellow North Wildwood, NJ merrymakers for Wildwood’s 5th Annual Maritime Festival at the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse.

For group gardeners: Today is the first city-wide garden day in Philly. Participating neighborhood gardens will welcome local gardeners in clean-up activities, food and crafts from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

For a parade: This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Olmstead decision, which guaranteed those with disabilities the right to live in the community. Celebrate the passage of this law at the Liberty Bell Center at 5th and Market for the Disability Pride Festival and Parade.

For sports fans: Watch baseball the way it was played in 1864 at Pennypacker Mills in Schwenksville, PA from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

For pop-punk fun: South Jersey band Man Overboard plays the TLA on South Street tonight. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts an hour later.
