While summertime is often an opportunity to get out and about and enjoy the streets of Philadelphia, outdoor opportunities continue to abound in the fall.

From block parties to Halloween-themed events to craft brew celebrations, the fall festival scene in Philly is heating up this month. Many of the area’s biggest and best events are being held right near your Dalian on the Park apartment—so clear your schedule and take advantage of all of the exciting opportunities that fall in Philly has to offer!

Here are a few of the local fests coming our way:

Old City Fest: Thousands of locals and visitors will converge on Old City, 2.5 miles from your Edgewater apartment, from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Oct. 8 for Old City Fest. The annual fall celebration features hundreds of local vendors—from artisans to food trucks and everything in between—as well as the opportunity to see the rich arts, culture and shopping opportunities of Old City in action.


South Street Pumpkin Fest: Who says you have to travel out to the ’burbs to go pumpkin picking? You can do that right along South Street at the South Street Pumpkin Fest, 2.5 miles from your Edgewater apartment, on Oct. 27. The all-day festival features lots of family-friendly activities: pumpkin painting, horse and wagon rides, circus performances and the chance to go trick or treating at local businesses. Adults can also get in on the fall fun with local food trucks and seasonal brews.


Franklin Square Pumpkin Patch: Enjoy the sights and sounds of the Franklin Square Pumpkin Patch on Oct. 20. Held at the historic square, 1.5 miles from your Edgewater apartment, the event features pumpkin painting and carousel and train rides for kids (or kids at heart!), and food, brews and vendors for adults. Franklin Square is an historic park that is brimming with lots to see and do year-round, especially during the fall!
