Spend an autumn afternoon exploring the many wonders and mysteries of Laurel Hill Cemetery while celebrating Halloween. Fall fun for the family at Laurel Hill will thrill and chill both the young and old! The cemetery’s primary location overlooking the Schuylkill River will offer visitors majestic views of the colorful fall foliage and vibrant landscape along Kelly Drive. Activities will include a pumpkin patch, readings from the Storybook Fairy, hula hooping with The Philadelphia Spin Coalition and –new this year— hay rides throughout the grounds.
Feast on festive snacks, or bring your own picnic. Attendees are advised to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and children are encouraged to show off their best Halloween costumes! This program is recommended for families with children ages 4-12.
