Philadelphia Flower Show


March 18-19, 2017

The AARP Block Party headed indoors for the Philadelphia Flower Show March 18-19. The huge crowds had a great time experiencing a different side of AARP; creating spin-art, experiencing virtual reality and more. The Block Party also featured giving trees where visitors had the opportunity to fill out a card answering the question “What can you and AARP do to make your community a better place?” and then place the card on the trees.
