Not sure if any of that is useful to anyone else, but I think it sounds exciting- even worth the crowd. Free is free afterall. :D

What's Charter Day? :confused:


I am relatively new to PA so I would love something free!! :)


The "charter" in Charter Day refers to the charter King Charles II of Great Britain granted Pennsylvania founder William Penn on March 4, 1681. It's typically celebrated the second Sunday in March, and admission to various museums and historical places of interest statewide is often free.
