If you want to grab a free hoagie, come on over to Independence Mall along Arch Street between 5th& 6th streets starting at 12 noon!

To make the event a little more interesting, and to highlight local heroes, those free hoagies will be made by first responders, and military members and other community heroes competing in a very meaty hoagie-building competition! They'll be constructing 7 tons of free shorti hoagies, which is about 30,000! The event will wrap up at 3 pm.
