The forecast for today includes these five events.

For (another) 4-H fair: The second day of the Delaware County 4-H Fair, held at the Garrett Williamson Foundation in Newtown Square, Pa. is today. Gates open at 9 a.m. and you can expect to see a hog show, bake sale and livestock auction throughout the day, which ends t 5 p.m.

For a car show: Antique and vintage is all the rage right now. Cars of this nature are no exception as they’re put on display from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today at New Hope-Solebury High School for the New Hope Automobile Show.

For a family event: So easy, even a third grader can do it (and definitely has)—lima bean planting activities, flower pot decorating and seed ball-making are all planned to help kids understand the value in home-grown produce during the African American Museum in Philadelphia’s latest family series. The free activities are held at the Old City museum from noon until 3 p.m.

For something from times past: A combination of historical mansions, museums and grounds help foster a historical frenzy by pulling back the curtain on the cultural heritage of Germantown on the second Saturday of the month. 15 destinations in Historic Germantown, like Grumblethorpe, Cliveden and Johnson House welcome families for tours from noon until 4 p.m.

For a rock throwback: Since bursting onto the original pop-punk scene in 2005 with burlesque-inspired rock tunes, Panic at the Disco’s lineup has gone through various incarnations. The hold-steady, frontman Brendan Urie’s showmanship allowed the group to transcend from energetic openers to unpretentious rock stars. They bring that energy to Festival Pier on Columbus Boulevard at 7:30 p.m. today.
