With Halloween a little over a week away, Philly families can see that our events calendar is getting spookier and scarier as the days go by. This weekend offers encounters with wizards in Chestnut Hill, goblins at Camden Children's Garden, and ghosts at Evans-Mumbower Mill. Visitors to Ebenzener Maxwell Mansion can even participate in a 'who-done-it' mystery!
But, if your crew seeks not-so-scary fun (instead of the golden snitch), fear not! There is plenty of excitement in store. Sesame Place invites children to Abby's Magical Magician Ball this weekend. The Academy of Music features Cinderella's Children's Ball before the Pennsylvania Ballet takes the stage. And, The Academy of Natural Science hosts its annual Philadelphia Shell Show which displays thousands of unique sea shells.
