Weekend Planner: October 11, 2019

Family-fun events and activities in Philadelphia, the suburbs, South Jersey and Delaware for Oct. 11-13, 2019

Top Picks for This Weekend

It’s A-OK to go a little wild during Boo at the Zoo. The Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, PA and the Philadelphia Zoo both get in the spirit with festivities that include a costume contest, trick-or-treat, a hay-bale maze and, of course, appearances by favorite animals.

Bring the whole family to the South Jersey Pumpkin Show at the Salem County Fairground in Woodstown Saturday and Sunday, where you’ll find fall fun including hayrides, giveaways, pony rides, wine sampling, live music and the state’s largest pumpkin pie.

Local theme parks, museums and other big-name destinations have more in common than just their nearby location: They know how to celebrate Halloween and the harvest season! Find out what to expect during your next visit, from eerie encounters to cheery fall fun.
