Cirque Du Soleil Volta  Where do we begin when it comes to this incredible entertainment spectacle? How about with the fact that it’s simply dazzled the tri-state area all summer long? Or, that it’s (literally) under the BIg Top??!!

Get those tickets. 

The Offspring/311 Hey, it’s a crazy f@#king world out there, but if there’s one thing that we can all agree on right this very second, it’s that there’s going to be a whole lot of ’90s music lovin’ taking over Penn’s Landing tonight. You betta mosh right here for access.  Friday/Festival Pier /7 pm

SWEAT 2018  Now, what could be better than an all-inclusive LGBTQ party down by the river thrown down by Back to Basics which is guaranteed to be filled with lots of glitter and rainbow love?
