PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- One of the many events during this year's Wawa Welcome America celebration happens this Saturday, June 30, and it's something new. 

"This year, we are very excited because at the Pennsylvania Convention Center we are going to have a community festival, and so anyone and everyone could come to the beautiful Pennsylvania Convention Center and enjoy all of the activities that are inside. Everything from movies and family games to free performances and the chance to see the center's million dollar plus art collection. 

Jeff Guaracino is President and CEO of Welcome America Inc: 

"And the best part it's inside -- with air conditioning! It has great bathrooms, lots of entertainment," Guaracino explained. "So if it's a hot summer day, it's a great time to be inside and see that big beautiful building that many of us will go by on SEPTA or on our way to work but don't have a chance to actually go inside." 

And there's more delights right across the street.  

Ice Cream

"The Reading Terminal Market will be doing the ice cream festival on the same day," Guaracino said. "Get some ice cream, come inside to the Pennsylvania Convention Center and you will have a great family day, and it's all for free."
