ith so much going on this month, it was nearly impossible to narrow down all the great choices, but we did our best. From a ghostly art installation floating over the Delaware River to Oktoberfests all around town, you won’t be bored. Turn to page 4 to see what’s going on. And of course the biggest event this month is Halloween. This year, Philadelphia gives Jack Skellington’s Halloween Town a run for its money. Yes, there’s trick-or-treating and costumes, but events like Terror Behind the Walls plus spooky sites around America’s most historic square mile take All Hallows Eve in Philly to a new level. Find out all the spine-tingling details on page 6. It’s also a great time to explore. Turn to page 10 for our recommendations on where to go in South Street/Headhouse, and then grab your walking shoes and experience Philly, just like a local.

Named for the first person to cross Benjamin Franklin Bridge shortly after it was built, Morgan’s Pier at the Delaware River Waterfront kicks off fall with Oktoberfest, giving this beer-loving town plenty of reason to raise a stein (or three). The suds flow freely, with plenty of soft pretzels to soak it all up, plus live music and a deejay to keep the autumnal beats going long into the night. 221 N. Columbus Blvd., 215.279.7134.

The country’s most historic square mile serves as the picturesque backdrop for Old City Fest,a wide-ranging block party. Among the centuries-old brick buildings, circus performers engage the crowd, local artists display their works, and restaurants serve up some of Philly’s tastiest foods. Pop-up performances and a runway fashion show add to the festive vibe. Third and Arch streets, 215.592.7929.

Philly’s Halloween Scene

Trick or treat! It’s time to celebrate Halloween in Philadelphia, where there are spooky experiences to be had all month long. From a spine-tingling haunted house set within the walls of an infamous prison to a walking tour that combines ghost stories with bar hopping to a kid-friendly festival at America’s oldest zoo, there’s something to help everyone get into the holiday spirit, Philly style. AMY GORDON

“While Philadelphia is alive with culture and excitement, it’s also home to a handful of epic final resting places.”

This month, Eastern State Penitentiary, the country’s most historic prison, transforms into the ever-popular Terror Behind the Walls (2027 Fairmount Ave., 215.236.3300, www.eastern state.org/Halloween), a disturbing haunted house where visitors encounter maniacal doctors, zombie guards, and other creepy characters along a perilous journey. On select evenings this month, evil clowns make nightmares come true and undead souls lurk around every turn at Fright Factory (2200 S. Swanson St., 215.334.4678, www. frightfactory.tv), which is set in the eerie basement of an old factory in South Philly. This year marks the first Haunted Circus at the Philadelphia

School of Circus Arts (6452 Greene St., 215.849.1991, www.phillycircus.com/ haunted-circus). Visitors can choose the Cellar Path for tame, family-friendly fun or the amped-up Attic Path, which includes a blindfolded section and a supernatural séance.

GHOSTLY GRAVEYARDS While Philadelphia is alive with culture and excitement, it’s also home to a handful of epic final resting places. Christ Church Burial Ground (5th and Arch streets, www.christchurchphila. org) houses the remains of Colonial America’s most important figures, including five signers of the Declaration of Independence. Throughout the month, Laurel Hill Cemetery (3822 Ridge Avenue,

try’s premier horror writer, churning out chilling stories like “The Raven” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.” Poe lived in Philadelphia from 18381844, and his home (532 N. 7th St., 215.965.2305, www.nps.gov/edal) is now a historic site that’s free and open to the public.

Featuring exhibits such as a wall lined with skulls, a plaster cast of conjoined twins, and samples of Albert Einstein’s brain, the Mütter Museum (19 S. 22nd St., 215.560.8564, www.muttermuse um.org) is enough to give visitors the creeps all year long. On October 17, the museum reveals a new exhibit, “Spit Spreads Death: The Influenza Pandemic of 1918-19 in Philadelphia,” which delves into the epidemic that killed more than 20,000 Philadelphians in six months. Long before Stephen King and R. L. Stine, Edgar Allan Poe was the coun-

After the sun goes down, ghost hunters take a guided walking tour to uncover the haunted history lurking amidst Old City’s fabled cobblestone streets. On the Spirits of ’76 Tour (leaves from 325 Chestnut St., 215.525.1776, www. spiritsof76.com), visit more than 20 sites, including the “dancing” statue of Benjamin Franklin at Library Hall, locations featured in the

classic M. Night Shyamalan thriller “The Sixth Sense,” and Washington Square Park, once the burial ground for poor Philadelphians and victims of yellow fever. Grim Philly (leaves from 1 N. Independence Hall W., 856.829.3100, www. grimphilly.com) presents its “Spooktacular” programming just in time for Halloween with tours all about ghosts, witches and cemeteries, plus “haunted” pub crawls.

FAMILY-FRIENDLY FESTIVITIES For kid-friendly fun that’s more smiles than scares, Halloween in Franklin Square (200 N. 6th St., 215.629.4026, www.historicphiladelphia.org/frank lin-square) offers spooky
