Halloween/Fall Activities in Franklin Square Over the Next Two Weekends


Franklin Square has been known as a perfect summer attraction, but don’t miss its array of family-friendly autumn events and activities!

The attractions may be closed on weekdays (except SquareBurger, which is open from 11 am to 2 pm), but each weekend (from 11 am to 8 pm) the entire park comes alive with mini-golf, the carousel and all the usual Franklin Square fun, and several Halloween themed events.

Halloween in Franklin Square programming:

Spooky Mini-Golf
Every weekend in October, beginning at dusk
After dark, Philly Mini-Golf becomes Spooky Mini-Golf, complete with music, creepy characters and of course, fog. Find out how difficult it is to sink a putt while you’re looking over your shoulder for Frankenstein!

Trick-or-Treat Trail
October 24th and 31st
12 noon to 3pm
Children (and parents) are encouraged to put on their best Halloween costumes and before the candy-collecting begins, design and decorate your very own trick-or-treat bag.  Once you’re properly equipped, follow the trail and start racking up the treats!

Lightning Bolt Express
October 24th and 31st
12 noon to 3pm
Be sure to grab a ticket for the kid-friendly ride around the park, while taking in Franklin Square’s beautiful fall foliage.
