Travel Through Time with PIFA
The second Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts, or PIFA 2013, opened on March 28th. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, the Kimmel Center Plaza is once again be its hub - this time, with a giant Time Machine, and a number of free events. Kimmel Center President Anne Ewers says the festival highlights the Center's role as a public gathering space.
The city festival features music, theater, dance, and other activities staged by over 50 PIFA partners.
A number of free events will take place on the Kimmel’s Commonwealth Plaza, including Friday at noon concerts, late-night jazz, and a musical production Tuesday through Sunday nights. The 31-day festival ends with a public day-long fair on Broad Street on April 27th.
