Family-fun events and activities in Philadelphia, the suburbs, South Jersey and Delaware for Oct. 25-27, 2019

Top Picks for This Weekend

Philly's Headhouse Square plays host to the FREE South Street Pumpkinfest Saturday, complete with circus performances, live music, a straw-bale maze, pumpkin putt-putt golf, costume contests and a pumpkin-pie eating contest.

Experience Mexican culture and traditions during the family-friendly CultureFest! Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration at Philly’s Penn Museum Saturday. You’ll enjoy music & dance performances, puppetry, storytelling, sugar skulls, arts & crafts, and the centerpiece of the event, an elaborate altar created by local artists.
