Guests can take pictures in a 360-degree photo booth and children can get their faces painted. There also will be bounce houses to play in.

The PAL of Philadelphia sponsors the event to foster community relationships and allow children a safe space to celebrate Halloween. 

"This community-focused Halloween event will provide a safe place for kids to dress up and partake in Halloween activities without the threat of traveling the streets," a press release said. "PAL centers are a safe haven for youth where they know they can come in and feel safe to be a kid."

For 75 years, PAL has offered educational programming, sports, chess, computer clubs, and other activities throughout the city to engage with kids.
