The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia celebrated the opening of its sponsored play area at the King of Prussia Mall with ribbon-cutting and face-painting Friday morning.
The new CHOP play area brings in colorful play elements to encourage creative play and exercise while out for a day at the mall. The 1,200 square foot area features a replica of the hospital, an ambulance, and a rescue helicopter, all brought together with tunnels, climbing walls, and slides.
The opening included remarks from CHOP oncologist Julie Stern and Pennsylvania State Representative, Tim Briggs. Children enjoyed activities like face painting, balloon animals, and playing with all the new toys.
Today's weather? Cloudy, muggy, and eventually, stormy. If you get a strong to severe storm, it would probably be lat afternoon and evening. Highs in the upper 70s. Some of the storms will produce locally heavy rain and gusty winds.
This system is from the same cold front that caused the midwest tornadoes. It will also usher in cooler air for the holiday weekend.
