Food & Drink

Your guide to this year's top Oktoberfest celebrations in Philadelphia

This Saturday, there are three big Oktoberfest celebrations in the city.

The South Street Oktoberfest will be back for the 10th year out front of Brauhaus Schmitz. Over in Fishtown, neighbors Frankford Hall and Fette Sau will host the eighth PHLOktoberfest.

Xfinity Live! will also host a beer-fueled celebration by the stadiums.   

Center City Restaurant Week will run for more than seven days this fall

Restaurant Week begins Sunday, so make your reservations quickly. 

More than 100 popular restaurants – like High Street on Market, Bud & Marilyn's, R2L and Sampan – are participating. With so many choices, it's going to be hard to pick which spots to visit.

Family-Friendly Fundraisers

Hang with Flyers legend Bernie Parent at fundraiser to save animals

On Saturday, fans can meet the beloved goalie before a drive-in movie in Chester Springs, Chester County.

The event will benefit the Pennsylvania SPCA.

Mini-golf event to help fund scholarships for African-American engineering students

Support the Jamel C. Morris Foundation this Saturday by playing mini-golf with friends and family. 

The foundation, which was started after a tragic hit-and-run, provides scholarships to promising low-income African-American students to attend Drexel University's College of Engineering.

Early Halloween

One Liberty Observation Deck gets in the Halloween spirit with new "Twilight Tours"

On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, through Oct. 31, a guided skyline tour with a Halloween twist will be offered at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

57 floors up, you'll learn about Philly's spooky history.

"Terror Behind the Walls" revamps its haunted hospital attraction for 2018

The haunted house in Eastern State Penitentiary is officially open for the season. 

At "Terror Behind the Walls," attendees can decide if they want to watch the frightening action unfold around them, or become immersed in the terror.

Those who choose the truly interactive experience may be grabbed, held back, sent into hidden passageways or even temporarily separated from their groups.
