Looking for the best things to do in Philly this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your schedule.

Harvest festivals abound from the city to the 'burbs. That fall farm feel comes to Philly this weekend, with Dilworth Park's opening of its massive hay maze. Philly gets extra festive on Saturday, with South Street Fest (rescheduled from the spring) taking over South, and 13th street making way for the Midtown Village Fall Fest. Lots of Halloween favorites are getting up and running, including Spooky Mini Golf in Franklin Square and Hayrides to the Witch's House over at Linvilla. 

It's the end of September, which basically means it's Halloween, so get planning with our list of the 50 best Halloween events for kids and keep an eye on our Halloween Activity Guide for more spooky fun. Be sure to check out our Fall Activities Guide too for all of our favorite autumnal activities.
