Sister Cities Park is the place to be on Saturday afternoons in October. The Center City green space is home to a variety of fall events all month long.
Stop by the park from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday in October for Fall Family Fun Days at the park. Every week, shop fall decorations from Urban Jungle (pumpkins! fall-inspired home decor!), enjoy seasonal food and drinks and check out a Scarecrow Festival on the grounds.
Come back, week after week, for varied events every Saturday. Each Saturday afternoon event provides guests with live music, a craft activity and visitors from a number of area institutions such as the Franklin Institute and the Philadelphia Fire Department. Think leaf print crafts on October 5, a fire truck visit on October 12, how to be green tips from Philadelphia Parks and Recreation on October 19 and even a Halloween parade on October 26.

The family fun days are free, open to the public and rain or shine events.
