Halloween Weekend Things to Do in Philly with Kids: Trick-or-Treating, Haunted Houses

It's finally time to celebrate the spookiest day of the year, and we've got the best things to do in Philly for Halloween weekend from the city to the 'burbs.

It's the moment our kids have been waiting for...and we're ready for all the Halloween activities we can possibly pack into one weekend. Dress like a princess, superhero, or storybook character, and collect candy along Passyunk Avenue, in Franklin Square, Chestnut Hill, or Manayunk. Train aficionados can find sweets on the railroad aboard New Hope's Trick-or-Treat Train or West Chester's Trick-or-Treat Special, while fans of emergency vehicles can discover sugary surprises at an Emergency Vehicle Trunk or Treat. Older kids looking for frightful fun can hit up the haunted houses at Fright Factory or Sleepy Hollow Haunted Acres.
