Fred’s Footsteps held its first spring fundraiser – The Party in the Park – on June 8, 2007 at Franklin Square Park in Philadelphia. The park had recently re-opened following a multi-million dollar rehabilitation by Historic Philadelphia, Inc., and was sparkling with its beautiful Merry-go-round and miniature golf course. After three years in the park, the event moved to Fairmount Park’s Please Touch Museum for four successful years before finding its home at Urban Outfitters, Inc. in the Philadelphia Navy Yard. 2017 marked our fourth year in this incredible, exclusive location. Now appropriately named the Party in the YARD, the event has been deemed by many the most fun event of the season!
