2. East Passyunk Second Saturday

April 9, 10 am — 9 pm

East Passyunk Avenue, East Passyunk

For shopping that will keep your heart rate up and your closet happy, head to East Passyunk’s Second Saturday! This free event is a great way to get out into the neighborhood and support local businesses. Also, complimentary adult beverages will be served while you shop.

3. The Stinky Cheese Man (and Other Fairly Stupid Tales)

April 9, noon; April 10, noon and 4 pm

Arden Theatre Company, 40 N. 2nd St., Philadelphia

Your kids probably love the book — now, see the show. There’s nothing stupid about the Arden Theatre Company’s clever and exciting performance of The Stinky Cheese Man (and Other Fairly Stupid Tales). See fairy tales turned on their heads with the whole family, although the show is best for children ages 5 and up. This is a ticketed event.

4. Symphony at the Movies

April 9, 7:30 — 9 pm

601 N. Lansdowne Ave., Drexel Hill

Classical music isn’t as inaccessible as it seems (hey, who doesn’t love Fantasia on Netflix, right?) and if you want to get your children excited about different, more traditional music, bring them to Symphony at the Movies this weekend! With a live orchestra playing famous movie themes, from iconic films such as Jurassic Park, Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean. This is a ticketed event.

5. The Jungle Book

April 9, 11 am — noon

601 N. Lansdowne Ave., Drexel Hill

For a retelling of The Jungle Book that relies on dance to tell the story, head to the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center for this riveting performance. Dancers will not only portray animals, but also encompass culture and customs from throughout the world. Children who love the Disney film will love this! This is a ticketed event.
