Here are a few events we look forward to in Philly!
Chrysanthemum Festival at Longwood Gardens
Saturday, October 7th - Sunday, November 19th; A beautiful variety of mums everywhere. A little bit of a drive from Philly, but if you love flowers and gardens, there's no better place than Longwood Gardens.
8th Annual Mums & Mutts Fall Festival
Saturday, October 14; Family Fun in the Park; Games, Contests and Prizes; Raffles, Eagles tickets, Hotel stays, and more! Doggie Costume Contest! Bouncey House, Face Painting, and Arts and Crafts!
Over 15 Local Shelter and Rescues with adoptable pets -- all breeds, ages, and sizes looking for forever homes!
The Bigger-Than-Ever Harry Potter Festival
Friday and Saturday, October 20th-21st; Fortune tellers, crafts, costume contest, live performance and more!
Saturday, October 28th-Tuesday, October 31st; Although the "official" date for Halloween is October 31st, in Philly the celebration begins early. On Saturday, the 28th, most of our neighborhood civic associations hold parades and parties for the children leading up to the "big trick-or-treat event" (on a Tuesday this year)!
Veterans Day Parade & Festival
Sunday, November 5; Lots of food, fun, and a chance to honor the Veterans of the United States Military, and give them our thanks.
Thanksgiving Day Parade
Thursday, November 23rd; Even Mickey and Minnie love coming to Philadelphia to be part of our parade! Floats, marching bands, and fun for the family.
Wherever you are, enjoy Autumn!
