Whether you are people-watching at a South Street sidewalk cafe, lounging under a beach umbrella in Atlantic City, or buying water ice or hot dogs from a Philadelphia street vendor, you can thank S. Frankford & Sons Inc. for the pool of shade that takes the edge off a sweltering summer day. The venerable and scrappy Philadelphia company supplies table umbrellas to John's 606 Bar & Grill, at Third and South Streets; beach umbrellas to the Showboat...

Regular visitors to Ninth Street in South Philadelphia know you don't need a special festival to have fun at the Italian Market. Every day is a festival. Yesterday, though, was the official festival, featuring plenty of food, games and other atttractions. Not even the rain - a regular weekend event in these parts, it seems - could keep visitors away from this Philadelphia treasure.

The details seemed overwhelming as Mike English tried to complete preparations this week for Haverford Township Day, a local festival that swelled to nearly 20,000 people last year. As two telephones rang Wednesday, the assistant township manager explained how he was still trying to contact parade marchers and entertainers. And, he added, "I'm praying for rain today and tomorrow, because the key to everything is this storm system going through. " Rain or no rain, the show will go on tomorrow, getting under way with the inaugural 5-kilometer race at 8:30 a.m. Then, at 10:30, comes the day's highlight: a two-hour parade, which will muster at the Manoa Shopping Center and march down Eagle and Darby Roads, rolling past a reviewing stand at the Skatium.

In a scene that's all too familiar this month, a pedestrian stands under an umbrella during a shower last week. Snoopy's friend, Woodstock (hanging out at 15th and Market streets), no doubt enjoys the occasional birdbath. But sorry, Charlie Brown, and all you other wet urban dwellers: It's going to rain again today. Weather details on Page 18.

ABOUT 30,000 people showed up for a Tim McGraw concert Monday. And that would not be all that unusual, except that in this case the 30,000 were listening to him on a beach. Actually, a beach that had absolutely no problem accommodating such a crowd - the ever-widening sands of Wildwood. The concert capped what by most accounts was quite a successful July Fourth weekend at the Shore, save for a few raindrops at midafternoon, and the threat of rain after dark Monday that doused scheduled fireworks shows in Wildwood and elsewhere around the region.

This year's Wawa Welcome America! pre-fireworks July 4 concert on the Ben Franklin Parkway was an early-bird special. With a goal of getting the explosions in the sky started by 10, the show's biggest names - Hamilton star and Philadelphia native Leslie Odom Jr. and Fort Worth, Texas, retro-soul singer Leon Bridges - had both completed their sets by 6:30 p.m. Odom, who grew up in East Oak Lane, was billed as both a star of the show and...

Maybe, some visitors said, the gray skies and impending rain kept the crowds thinner than usual. Others thought the musical lineup might have had something to do with the smaller audience. Or, some said, it was the construction on the Parkway. Still, this is Philadelphia - the country's birthplace, the reason Fourth of July means more than just the date. A little rain wasn't stopping the party. "It might be raining, but we're not going anywhere. I'm still having a good time," said Saladin Weens, 39, of North Philadelphia, who came out with his 13-year-old daughter, Nailah.

Water, sunlight, and construction nails have been showering the plants at one of Center City's most popular community gardens. Among the blooming flowers, tomatoes, and herbs is the occasional two–by–four sticking out of a plot of soil. So far, the nails and other construction detritus has resulted in closures, meetings, special committees, and input from a lawyer. On Monday, after another meeting, a solution was reached. It involves a task force. The problem began when Dranoff Properties and contractor Intech began construction of One Riverside, a 22-story residential tower at 210 S. 25th St. The Schuylkill River Park Community Garden is its immediate neighbor to the south.

Rain put a damper Monday on Memorial Day celebrations, particularly for those wanting to spend time on the beach at the Shore. Some parades also were postponed or canceled while other observances were moved indoors, including Ocean City's annual service. Still, in other places, including the Bridesburg section of Philadelphia and Media, parades went ahead under granite skies. Rain held off - and there were event hints of the sun - for the remembrance services at the Korean War and Vietnam Veterans memorials in Philadelphia.

THE TWO BIGGEST music stories of the year happened just two days apart last month: Prince died, and Beyoncé came alive like never before. Of course, it was unfortunate timing on Queen Bey's part that the greatest album and bravest artistic achievement of her career, Lemonade , landed April 23, just two days after Prince's passing. The ambitious marketing campaign behind the album started in early February at the Super Bowl and culminated with an HBO special on the day of release.
