There is no doubt Philly families are in for a treat this October weekend. For starters, there are many ways to enjoy the autumn season. Make a scarecrow at Tyler Arboretum's Pumpkin Days Celebration, participate in a pumpkin catapult launch at Hagley, take a hayride at Pennypacker Farm's Harvest Fest, and explore Peace Valley Nature Center to search for autumn birds. Kids eager to wear their Halloween costumes can visit the animals while collecting treats at Elmwood Park Zoo's Boo at the Zoo.

Minecraft fans can get stoked for a weekend filled with gaming at Minefaire held at the Philadelphia Expo. Those who enjoy the Harry Potter series can search for artifacts during a Wizard School Scavenger Hunt at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Rock out with Ratboy Jr. at World Cafe Live or sing along with The Cat's Pajamas performing at the Girard Avenue Street Fair. But, if truth be told, most preschoolers just want to see Peppa Pig Live! at Keswick Theatre.
