Ready for the weekend? Of course you are!
On Friday, one of Philly's most popular beer gardens gets a fall makeover. Saturday, a "Hamilton" star takes the stage at the Kimmel Center and Sunday, a huge arts fest takes over the charming Chestnut Hill neighborhood.
It's a busy weekend in Philly. Check out everything that's going on in our roundup below.
Mural Arts Philadelphia is hosting this unique event Friday evening. Watch as musicians and puppets float along the Schuylkill River. On land, there will be music and food trucks.
Fall Fest at the waterfront beer garden starts this weekend. Morgan's Pier will be decorated with pumpkins, hay bales, cornstalks and twinkling lights.
Enjoy the autumn decorations while sipping on an Apple Spiced Toddy, or another seasonal drink.
