Welcome to the best day of your life.

For a look back in time: From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the museum in Historical Germantown (on Germantown Avenue) will be open and the At Home in Germantown exhibit is one to see. Settings from 1750-1900 are set up to give visitors an idea of what it was like to live in the area during that time.

For surfers: Utilize moves that surfers use when catching a wave at a unique fitness class, Surfset. Today’s beginner class starts at 11:30 a.m. Ocean City NJ’s Aquatic and Fitness Center.

For those who live organically: Weavers Way Farms at Saul High School in Roxborough will hold an informational talk at 4:30 p.m. on four different ways to compost at home—worm bins, backyard composting, drop-off locations and pickup service. 

For a book signing: Local author Jennifer Hansen Rolli will be at the Newtown Library Company in Newtown, PA at 6:30 p.m. to read from and sign her book Just One More. Kids are invited to come in their PJs and indulge in an ice cream party after.

For an innovative live performance: It goes like this—four bands of varying genres will set up along the walls of a warehouse. The audience will assemble in the middle. The bands then will trade off performing in a round table-like routine much like the scene below from Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. Doors open at 7 p.m. at URBN Annex on Filbert Street.
