The fun continued with music, museums and even animals on the second day of Wawa Welcome America! Here's a recap:
Each day of the festival at 8:30 a.m., Independence Blue Cross #MindPHL Wellness Corner is bringing you a moment to focus on your own emotional and physical health.
Museums of the Day
- Take a virtual tour and learn about the people and events that sparked the birth of the U.S. at the Museum of the American Revolution.
- If you’re into something a little more “out there,” maybe a little more creepy, learn about medical history by taking a gander at some of the anatomical models at the Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.
- Maybe you want something a little more tranquil and beautiful? Well, you can get that at the Shofuso Japanese Cultural Center.

Time to Jam

Music Play Patrol provided bucket drumming lessons at 11 a.m. They taught kids the basics of drumming using only ordinary buckets, trash and recycling cans from their home.
At 7 p.m. the United States Army Band, "Pershing's Own" hosted a special 10th anniversary “ United We Stand | Music to Connect Us” show featuring popular music and concluding with a grand finale arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s epic “1812 Overture.”
