Every October, the city transforms into a spooktacular season of Halloween filled with local bar crawls, seasonal pop-ups, and street markets and festivals.

The centuries-old cemeteries and military forts open their gates for candlelit ghost tours, and the world-famous zoo and many of the museums celebrate the holiday with themed events and exhibits. […]

There’s also Daryll Jones’ shop “for goths and other spooky nerds” on South Street called The DreamEerie. And that’s just to name a few. […]

It doesn’t matter if you live in the city or come in from the burbs, these are the Halloween events in Philadelphia you don’t want to miss.
