"On a beautiful day in a city filled with events, we were tremendously pleased with our 2nd Annual South Street Spring Festival," said Michael Harris, Executive Director, South Street Headhouse District. "Nearly 40,000 families, neighbors, and visitors enjoyed a fun day on South Street filled with food, music, and shopping. The great crowd was steady all day long and into the evening. The South Street Headhouse District business community got a chance to show the fantastic variety of restaurants and retailers in this unique and popular Philadelphia location. We look forward to seeing everyone back for the 3rd Annual South Street Spring Festival on Saturday, May 2, 2015."
Students from the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts popped up at the 5th and South streets stage at 5:00pm this past Saturday, May 3, 2014 during South Street Spring Festival. Erika and Freddie were enjoying their afternoon when the dancers popped up around them "flash mob" style - and Freddie was led to the stage as an innocent bystander. What Erika didn't know was that the routine would end with the students down on one knee with Freddie dancing his way into her heart with the city's most exciting marriage proposal. She said yes and thousands of onlookers cheered on the happy couple.
