What a historical time it was this past week in the beautiful city of Philadelphia. The Democratic National Convention left its mark on the streets of Philly in more ways than one. From protestors and tourist filling up the side walks to beautiful colors of red, white and blue splashed across every monumental building the city has to offer. This city was definitely a political fest for sure.

This past week Philadelphia put on its best patriotic performance as we housed some of the best events and exhibits throughout downtown. Already a staple city known for its  historical roots, it was pretty awesome to see some of the amazing exhibits that were added for the major event.

One of the really cool events that took place throughout the week was Political Fest, which was a historical road to the White House. Exhibits included patriotic programming, game shows, a look into the oval office and some of the nations most historical and time captivating events.

Political Fest included 6 days and 7 stops at some of the city’s most significant sites including the National Constitution Center, Pennsylvania Convention Center,National Liberty Museum, Philadelphia History Museum at The Atwater Kent, The Library Company Of Philadelphia, Historical Society Of Pennsylvania, & The Heritage Center at The Union League.

Check out some of the amazing pictures from the fest throughout the city.
