Friday marks the big kick-off of Parkway 100, a more than year-long celebration of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway’s 100th Anniversary. Starting today, a bunch of cultural institutions along the Parkway are offering pay-what-you-wish admissions, and there are a bunch of other free events happening along the boulevard, from concerts to walking tours to dance parties.
