Sidewalk Sizzle and Ice Cream Freeze outside RTM

The dozens of awesome vendors inside Reading Terminal Market take it outdoors for an annual summer block party. Stroll through and pick up a giant grilled turkey leg, cajun shrimp kabobs and sausages. There's also an ice cream eating contest and special music written as odes to Bassett's ice cream flavors and played on milkshake tins.

Where: Reading Terminal Market at 12th & Filbert streets

When: July 18, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

How much: Pay as you go
