Nature, Music, Graphic Arts, History and More this Week

We must be all partied out from the 4th because this weekend seems quiet. But head down to the river Saturday for a FREE program by the Audubon Center. I heard a rumor there might be other activities at Riverfront Park, too.

Saturday, July 8, noon-2 pm at Riverfront Park. Birding With Binoculars, a FREE program presented by the John James Audubon Center. Observe wildlife right on the Schuylkill River. Explore local waterfowl and learn how birds survive in their habitats by finding food, water, shelter, and space. Participants get a pair of binoculars to use during the program. Great for kids and families.

Saturday, 8-11 pm, Five Saints Distilling (Main and Green). Ken Pierson performs.

Sunday, 7 pm at the Elmwood Park Bandshell, Summer Concert Series presents Skitty Show (a little bit of everything). Bring a chair or blanket to sit on (though you're going to want to get up and dance). Concession stand will be open.

Tuesday, 1-2 pm at Norristown Library. Meet local graphic novelist Matt Phelan, who'll explain how to write and publish a graphic novel. All are welcome to attend, but especially teens.  Free.

Tuesday, 5:30-7 pm at the Historical Society (1654 Dekalb St.). Cruising Montgomery and Berks Counties. Cruising was a favorite activity on Friday and Saturday nights during the 1950's to show off your ride and your girl, impress your friends, or maybe get the attention of that special girl. Then stop at the drive-in for a soft drink or snack and check out everyone else. Come find out what you missed in this FREE program.
