Tens of thousands of people attended the annual Midtown Village Fall Festival on Saturday, according to Visit Philadelphia’s website. The center of the event took place at 13th and Sansom streets, with the entire festival spanning six blocks. It featured live music, food, drinks, art and vendors. There were also parties at local bars and restaurants, including an Oktoberfest event at Brü Craft & Wurst on Chestnut Street near 13th and food specials at McGillin’s Olde Ale House on Drury Street near 13th.
Angela Ynoarumhi, 34, of Chinatown, comes every year to attend the event with her family.
“It’s become sort of a tradition for us,” Ynoarumhi said.
Jerry Bohrer, a 2006 engineering alumnus, has been volunteering at the event for the past few years. “You can’t get anything like this except this time of year,” he said.
