40th Street Summer Festival in University City

The green space behind the Walnut West Free Library will become a circus of sorts for this annual summer fest, with trapeze artists, juggling, fire dancers, puppets and balloon artists providing family-friendly fun throughout the summer evening. Live music will set the mood, and there's free Ben & Jerry's ice cream and Philly Pretzels, while supplies last.

Where: 40th St. Field at 40th & Walnut streets

When: July 25, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

How much: Free
