Local Fall Activities to Fill Your Weekend

The weather looks fantastic for this weekend coming up. Sunny, no rain, and temps that require a cute fall outfit.

WMMR’s Queen of Activities, Kathy Romano, has put together a list brand new ideas to fill your fall cravings. So throw on a flannel, pull on your boots, stream the Phillies game on your phone and get out and enjoy one of Kathy’s recommendations:

  • Paranormal Cirque

    Paranormal Cirque is an unearthly tent show featuring acrobats, illusionists, freaks, mysterious creatures and all elements that makes one think of a normal circus, except this one is anything but normal! It’s a mix of circus, illusions, horror and comedy. You must be 17 to purchase tickets. Children ages 13-17 are welcome but at the parent’s discretion. The show has adult language and material. There are six shows from October 6th – 9th in a circus tent outside of the Oxford Valley Mall.

    Kathy’s helpful tip: you can get a $10 professional photo taken with your favorite slasher film characters on stage during the intermission.

  • The Harbaugh Village

    The Harbaugh Village was born out of the Harbaugh House Charity that connects to other local charities and gives back to families and children in need. The Harbaugh Village in Mullica Hill, NJ started as a Christmas Village and new this year is a Fall Village filled with just as much to do as there is during the holiday season. 12 vendor stalls are filled with local business from Mullica Hill. There is a Cinderella Pumpkin to hop in and grab a photo. A toy shop, candy shoppe, crafts, ring toss, and arcade games are what you will find along the village’s Main Street. Music, food trucks, beer & wine, roller skating, carousel, mega slide, pumpkin patch, corn maze, fire pits and more all help to create a fun family-friendly fall event. If you go in the evening be sure to visit “The Magic Pumpkin Patch,” a half-mile illuminated Jack-O-Lantern walk through.

  • Lincoln Mill Haunted House

    Lincoln Mill Haunted House is an all-new attraction hitting Main Street in Manayunk. Hurricane Ida flooded the Lincoln Mill (formerly Mad River Manayunk Bar & Grill) to historic water levels. The flood significantly damaged the interior of the mill. When the water receded, it revealed a hidden chamber in the basement. Local authorities uncovered that, during the Great Depression in the 1930’s, the mill owner was tormenting and experimenting on his workers. Countless workers lost their lives, and their spirits continue to haunt the mill! You’re invited inside to experience the terror that lies along the Schuylkill River in Manayunk. It’s a 15–20-minute walk through attraction that’s geared towards those who are 13 or older. Tickets give you access to the haunted house, food trucks, and two brewery stands. VIP tickets also include skip the line passes and access to the deck which faces the river and has high top tables to enjoy your food and beverages. $1 of every ticket sold is being donated to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

  • Gasper’s Pumpkin Painting and Scarecrow Making

    Gasper’s Home & Garden is having Pumpkin Painting and Scarecrow Making this fall season. The activities are rain-or-shine on the first four Saturdays in October. Children are invited to pick a pumpkin and paint it while you are there. Pumpkins are purchased separately. Families can also make a scarecrow. This is a must-do for us during the fall. At this Bucks County garden center, you bring all of the clothes for your scarecrow and Gasper’s provides the straw and everything else to assemble the scarecrow.

  • Tree Trails Adventure

    Tree Trails Adventure is an all-new aerial adventure in Trevose, PA. The tree trail courses range in difficulty from beginner to advanced, with skills and element challenges increasing in height and difficulty as guests progress. In my opinion, this is the most difficult course in our area. The courses all start at a centralized main platform, and after being harnessed and given a safety and training briefing, guests explore the park at their own speed and comfort level of difficulty. Both the adult and kid courses include zip lines, bridges made of cable and rope, and netted tunnels that are suspended between platforms built around trees and poles. There are five different courses open and a kid’s course for children 4-7 years old.

    Kathy’s helpful tip: It’s on the same property as The Valley of Fear. If you book the last tree trails session at 2p or 2:30p, you’ll have plenty of time to climb, grab dinner nearby and head back for the haunted attractions that start at 6pm.

  • Red Rhino Haunted Car Wash

    Red Rhino Haunted Car Wash. Pile the kids in the car for another Halloween activity. Except this time, you’ll leave with a spooky clean car. The Red Rhino Car Wash on Bristol Pike in Bensalem is creating a Haunted Car Wash for the 2nd year in a row. The experience is short but scary! It all starts the minute you drive into their lot, continues as you wait in line for your turn into the tunnel and inside the tunnel. The cost is $20 per car, and you’ll receive their “Works” wash while driving through the haunted tunnel carwash. It’s 4 nights only, October 21, 22 and 28 & 29 from 6:30pm-9pm. No reservation needed, drive-up only!

    Kathy’s helpful tip: If you purchase a membership the Haunted Car Wash is free!

  • Hersheypark Halloween

    Hersheypark Halloween returns with family fun and those sweet treats that everyone loves. But this year they are adding a new feature to their seasonal event: Dark Nights! This is an immersive haunt experience that spreads its shadow over the park with three unearthing scare zones (included with general admission) and four spine-tingling haunted houses (additional tickets are needed). Don’t worry, there are paths that bypass the scare zone for the younger ghosts and goblins visiting the park. During Dark Nights you can ride five rollercoasters in complete darkness. That’s right, no lights! Children 12 and under can enjoy thirteen sweet stops along Hershey’s Trick-or-Treat Trail. Be sure to try a few of the items on the limited time Hersheypark Halloween food guide.

    Kathy’s helpful tip: Get the fast-track pass if you want to experience all of the haunts in one visit.
