Weekend Planner: October 22, 2016

Family-fun events and activities in Philadelphia, the suburbs, South Jersey and Delaware for Oct. 22-23, 2016.

Top Picks for This Weekend

Philly’s Chestnut Hill neighborhood transforms into Hogsmeade Sat. for a packed schedule of FREE fun during the Harry Potter Festival, where activities include a Quidditch match, scavenger hunts, a Sorting Hat demo, character appearances and movie screenings.



Revel in the season with a FREE Philly festival that spans four locations in one area Sat. Frightless fun at Halloween in Manayunk includes costume parades, a kids' carnival, trick-or-trea, a farmers’ market, face painting, photo ops, games, a corn maze and treats.



Let the family dog show off his costume alongside a slew of adorable pets during three pup-pup-centered parades, where fun activities like a talent contest and fundraising for animals in need go paw-in-hand. On Sat., pooches and their humans can head to Philly’s Navy Yard for the PAWS Mutt Strut, or march in the FREE Costume Pet Parade at Smithville, NJ’s Village Greene. The next day, those on two and four legs can join the Howl-O-Ween Pet Parade at Erdenheim, PA’s  Cisco Park to fundraise for a great cause.
