Fall is fully in the swing of things, and we know you’re looking for some socially distanced fun after the school week! While the weather is still comfortable to spend time outside, take advantage of all the Fall and Halloween themed activities in the Philadelphia region. Despite the COVID-19 updates to celebrating this time of year, we still would like to encourage you to enjoy the season safely. 


The Pennypack Trail self guided tours allows youngsters to explore and learn in nature. Stop and participate in activities to observe trees, seeds and leaves along this Montgomery County trail.


Starting Friday October 16, visit the Philadelphia Zoo for the annual Boo At The Zoo event through November 1. This year, the Zoo will be operating at 50% capacity with treats being handed out at the entrance rather than designated stops. Everyone age 2 and up is asked to wear a mask to safely enjoy this Halloween fun. 


Visit the National Liberty Museum to celebrate some fh Philadelphia’s own artists with the “Philly’s Freedom” exhibition, opening October 16 and running through February 13, 2021. Additionally, at the Barnes Foundation, “Elijah Pierce’s America” exhibition will run through January 10, 2021.  This exhibition features wood carvings that tells the history of America.     


For bird lovers, visit the Discovery Center Birdwalk. Birds flying south for the winter are passing through this time of year, and this Saturday see a guided viewing at Fairmount Park’s Discovery Center with the help of the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club. Be sure to bring binoculars!


Remember to bring your masks to any events in a public setting and maintain a safe, six feet apart from others while taking in the sights and events the season has to offer!
