Considering it will be Super Bowl Sunday, this is a fitting event that can be related to the armor that football players wear for protection. During this daytime event families can learn about the modern day armor worn today by firefighters, fencers and even in the natural world: The armadillo! There will be a fencing demonstration by the Fencing Academy of Philadelphia. Families can make their own armor in the Balcony Studio. Armored animals from the Philadelphia Zoo will make an appearance as well.
