PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The host committee of the Democratic National Convention is making sure political junkies have plenty to keep them occupied when the delegates are in Philadelphia to pick a presidential candidate.

Interactive exhibits, displays, games and theater celebrating American political history will be offered across seven downtown locations from July 22 to 27 as part of “PoliticalFest.”

The Oval Office set from the TV series “The West Wing” will be at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. At the National Constitution Center, the festival hub, actors who have played presidents on stage or on screen will take part in answer-and-question sessions.

Former Gov. Ed Rendell, the host committee chairman, says the festival will help showcase Philadelphia.

Tickets on sale at www.phldnc.com will provide entry to all venues as well as bus transportation.


This story has been corrected to show the festival will be held July 22-27, not June 22-27.
