Yo Adrian! You got to check out these festivities that happened on Day 5 of the Wawa Welcome America Festival. The free events continued with a chance to watch "Rocky" on the very steps the movie was filmed, two options for free museum day and an opportunity to celebrate women in the arts.

Philly @ the Movies: 'Rocky'

The tradition returned this year with Philly @ the Movies, "Rocky" edition. Viewers sat back and relaxed on the famous steps to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and watched Philly's favorite boxing love story for free.

Individuals brought blankets and chairs to get comfortable for the screening which started at 7 p.m. and ended around 9 p.m.

There were food, drinks and exciting performances by various talented Philadelphia women. The event ran from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Free Museum Day at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts

People checked out the PAFA for free and were inspired by the story of American art told through its collections, exhibitions and programs.

Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., they viewed numerous collections of art ranging from the 18th and 19th century and experienced exhibitions that sought to amplify artistic voices.

Free Museum Day at Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum
