Sensing a dearth in our social media participation—Facebook and Twitter are getting lonely—Hidden City has at last activated an Instagram account that has been in long need of activation. With one weekend of the 2013 Festival in the books and the second (of six) gearing up today, we’re building our base with views from the festival sites and installations.

Be sure to follow us, and by all means please contribute to the pool. We’re using the hashtag #hiddencityfestival, but we certainly welcome any and all creative additions. Bonus points for pics of cats at Germantown Town Hall or selfies at the Athenaeum.

Check out our feed online HERE, and follow us on your mobile Instagram app @HiddenCityPhila.
