Weekend Events Roundup

As winter gradually approaches, it is time to make the most of the few remaining warm weekends. And what better way to savor those temperate fall climates than by venturing into the park?

If you’re looking to spruce up your lawn with some additional foliage, you should definitely look into the TreePhilly Fall Tree Giveaway. You can register for your free tree here (note: preregistration is required), and then pick it up this Saturday at Longstreth Elementary School. Saturday’s event also includes educational information regarding how to plant and care for your new tree. For more information visit treephilly.org.

The Center City District is bringing some bark to the park with their second weekend of Fall Family Fun Days with Furry Friends. Saturday’s event includes adoptable animals from PAWS, PSPCA and Morris Animal Refuge, as well as free hayrides and a host of other family friendly activities.

If we’ve been barking up the wrong tree with these events, you may want to look into Applefest at Fox Chase Farm. For a small entrance fee, you can spend your Saturday pressing apples, going on hayrides, making apple butter, painting pumpkins, and more.

That’s all for this week, but stay tuned for next week’s round up of parks events. If you are planning a park event that you would like us highlight, send us an email at friends@philaparks.org.
