Halloween in Philadelphia

Halloween in Philadelphia

From its Halloween nightclub events to Halloween parties to haunted freak fests, Halloween in Philadelphia has garnered a well-earned reputation as one of the best spots in the country to celebrate the holiday. Events such as the Annual Henri David Ball have been ongoing for as many as 40 years, and bring a special presence to the city on Oct. 31. The Halloween Ball is known for the bringing in lavish ghouls and offering an old-world setting to provide a one-of-a-kind atmosphere.

Anther notable Halloween nightlife event is Nightmare at Benny the Bum’s, which brings in a younger crowd and live musical performances to have it dancing in a frenzy. Since Halloween is on a Saturday this year, there’s sure to be a plethora of other Philly Halloween nightclub events that will be bigger and better than in years past, with costume contests and frights to suit.

Other Philadelphia Halloween events include visiting the Eastern State Penitentiary and the Edgar Allen Poe National Historic Sight. The Eastern State Penitentiary sets the standard for spooky with its Gothic architecture and hidden components. Famous for placing criminals in the most confining isolation, the stories heard on this national landmark’s tours will scare even those who think themselves spook-resistant. The Poe exhibit is hosted in the poet’s actual residence and explores what made the man’s mind go so wild.

Scarefests are omnipresent throughout historical Philadelphia, but a few other notables include Ghost Tours of Philadelphia, Terror Behind the Walls and the Spirits of ’76 Ghost Tour. Whatever your agenda this Halloween, Philadelphia’s the perfect place to celebrate with Halloween nightlife events, Halloween parties and scream-inducing Halloween frights.
