Old City Fest draws young and old alike in celebration of historic neighborhood

Thousands enjoyed the ambiance of the day, walking along some of the oldest and still cobbled streets of Philadelphia’s Old City neighborhood Sunday.

Celebrating Old City Fest, several blocks along 3rd and Arch Streets were transformed in order for folks to take advantage of the many independently owned shops, galleries and restaurants.
