January 16th, 2018

Most people would say autumn is one of their favorite seasons. Personally, I love go kart racing on a nice Spring day, but hey, to each his own. The fact is, there are a lot of poeple out there who love autumn, and that is just awesome. And to honor you, we decided to create this list of fun activities for you to do this season.So if you want to get out and enjoy life in The City of Brotherly Love, try these 5 Fun Fall Activities In Philadelphia.

Stock up on apples. If an “Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away” then now’s the time to visit a local orchard and have fun filling a bushel. Or head over to Peddler’s Village Apple Festival November 1st and 2nd to not only find apples and cider, but hear live music and maybe even participate in an apple pie-eating contest.

Visit a local winery. Grapes are being harvested and this is the perfect time to go for a drive, enjoy the fall foliage, and stop for some wine tasting.

Pick your pumpkins. For a family friendly event, the Franklin Square pumpkin patch will be October 18th. Kids can pick and decorate a gourd to take home. The South Street Headhouse Square District gets into the October spirit with the Pumpkin Fall Festival on October 25th. Enjoy a hayride, music, art displays, vendors, and a pumpkin giveaway. Or simply take a drive to the country and find your favorite pumpkin patch.

Movie buffs can check out the 23rd annual Philadelphia film festival October 16 – 26th and enjoy a variety of genres, special guests, and events. Fans of the Harry Potter series will enjoy the Harry Potter festival in Chestnut Hill October 17-19th.

Race indoor go karts. There are times when you want to go do something fun, but the weather just doesn’t cooperate for all the outdoor events and festivals. Speed Raceway offers indoor electric go kart racing that provide some fun no matter what the weather is outside. Their state-of-the-art karts are designed to give you a racing experience that feels like the real deal, so come prepared to compete and have fun.
