PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) Get outside this weekend — just remember to bring your hand sanitizer and face masks in tow.

A few more museums reopen this weekend, and there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy live music, whether at the Awbury Arboretum, the Robeson House — or on your couch.

Plus, there are more virtual yoga classes, drive-in movies, and socially distant plant exchanges.

The National Constitution Center is excited to welcome back visitors — and, admission is free for the next month, with advance reservations. Learn about great debates, the U.S. Constitution, and much more, like its upcoming exhibit on the 19th Amendment.

The Spirit of Philadelphia is also setting sail again. Experience the vibrant energy and rich history of Philadelphia from the water — with a modern commitment to present-day’s health and safety priorities.

 

WEEKEND EVENTS

Did you know that the first-ever drive-in theater in the U.S. debuted in Camden? Create a nostalgic moment at the drive-in where it all began. Bring the family to Cooper's Poynt Waterfront Friday night for a free showing of “Sonic the Hedgehog.” Registration is required.

On Saturday, Rancocas Woods Events & Shops in Mount Laurel is hosting a free community plant exchange with live music and local vendors. Bring your own cuttings, seeds, planters, and anything else you wish to exchange.

Then, join the audience of Awbury Arboretum for a socially distanced outdoor jazz show. With music spanning from Brazil to gypsy jazz and Americana, you’ll want to reserve a ticket.

The Larry McKenna Quartet kicks off the series Sunday evening. Forty-five spaces are available each night, and tickets are $20 each.

 

OUTDOORS VIA ONLINE

Live from the Paul Robeson House & Museum Friday night, V. Shayne Frederick and his trio will be performing Songs of Freedom and Hope. The concert is free to stream on Facebook Live, and proceeds from the concert will support the restoration of the Robeson House.

Relax and stream yoga classes from home or anywhere else via your cellphone. Roots2Rise will livestream Sunday at 10 a.m. from Rail Park. The class is free, but attendees are asked to pre-register online.

And, in a new mobile game, players can purchase Philadelphia’s landmarks as they explore the city. Love the LOVE Park sign or the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps? In the Landlord GO app, players can collect different properties from anywhere within the city or around the globe, with mechanics similar to Monopoly and Pokémon GO. What will you buy?
