For anyone who keeps up with the entertainment news, Labor Day weekend was a big weekend for Philadelphia. Jay Z and Philadelphia hosted the Made in America Festival and I was there for the festivities as a guest of one of the bands. Ron Howard was on hand to film a documentary to come out in 2013.
The talent stayed in the Four Seasons and I have to say this hotel would be a nice addition to LL. Right on the Parkway where the Art Museum, Barnes Foundation, Rodin Museum and The Franklin Institute are all located. The festival was also on the parkway.
Lately Philadelphia has been on the news for much gun play so it was nice to have our 1st huge festival go off with out a hitch - no shootings, no drunken idiots and the mayor and police department were very pleased.
I spoke with folks from all over the USA that came just for the festival and they were very pleasantly suprised at all the city had to offer.
My Labor Day weekend was heavy on the music since I also attended the Bruce Springsteen concert at Citizens Bank Park on 9-3-12. Bruce as always wowed the crowd. Not many musical acts get to play at the Phillies ballpark!
I will post some pix of the festival in the photo gallery since I can not seem to copy them into this blog!
