Spent time at the Kimmel Center while in town. They usually have concerts and Broadway shows there but this particle visit they were having an indoor flea market. There were plenty of vendors there with plenty of antiques and paintings for sale.

We happened to be walking by and stumbled in because we heard music. There was a band playing and lots of dancing going on. It was free to go in and the atmosphere was wonderful!

I would call the box office the day of the show to make sure there are tickets available and have them hold the tickets for you at the will call window. Shows sell out fast and well in advance.
