Headhouse District organizes fall pumpkin celebration


Philadelphians gathered at The Headhouse Shambles at 2nd and Lombard streets on Saturday to celebrate Halloween with food, candy and a variety of arts and crafts activities at the Fall Pumpkin Fest. Local businesses opened their doors to trick-or-treaters during the event to pass out candy. Pumpkins and hay bales lined the streets, and musicians performed outside in the district. Other activities included circus performances by the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts, horse and wagon hay rides, “Pumpkin Putt-Putt Golf” and a straw bale maze. A pumpkin pie eating contest and a jack ‘o lantern contest were new to the festival this year. Commonwealth Ciders and Philadelphia Brewing Company were on site pouring alcoholic beverages.
