Candy collectors, costume enthusiasts and lovers of the macabre, rejoice- Halloweekend is almost here! With Halloween falling on a Tuesday this year, this upcoming weekend is the official Halloween weekend in Philadelphia. There is no shortage of Halloween events- In all corners of the city from Packer Park to the Northeast, West Philadelphia to the banks of the Schuylkill River, spooky events await you. This weekend’s events will kick off this Friday at the MISCHIEF party hosted by The Mutter Museum. Beginning at 6:30 pm and lasting until 11 pm- the open bar, snacks, DJ and their incredible collection of medical oddities are sure to put you in the Halloween spirit. A general admission ticket will get you into the party and grant you access to all that is offered at the event (including the open bar). Costumes are strongly encouraged but not required.
If antique medical tools don’t get you in the mood for Halloween, stop by the Rittenhouse Row Halloween Celebration on Saturday from 10am-5pm. The local businesses of Rittenhouse Square are offering treats to all costume-clad patrons of any age. A similar event will be taking place simultaneously a few blocks south at the East Passyunk Fall Fest and Spooky Saturday from 11am-4pm. Similarly to the Rittenhouse Row Halloween Celebration, The East Passyunk Fall Fest will provide a trick-or-treating experience for everyone, including your pup. Beyond treats, the Fall Fest will be offering pumpkin painting, a costume contest for kids and dogs, food vendors and more.
West of the river, Boo at Zoo will be taking place at the Philadelphia Zoo. Trick-or-treaters can experience a brand new take on candy collecting while strolling past tigers, bears and more, all included in a general admission ticket.
