Fall is here everyone! The weeks are getting colder and what better reason to spice up your weekend with our hot events. This weekend’s itinerary includes everything from fall festivals, incredible jewelry deals, fitness fun, and a concert event. We’ve even included a sneak peek to next weekend’s plans just for you. It’s been a long and gloomy workweek so lets tame that frizzy hair and break out our coats because these next few days are going to be cool ones.

DO: MIDTOWN VILLAGE FALL FESTIVAL
Live close to the heart of the city? Perfect! The Midtown Fall Festival is this Saturday, October 3rd from noon to 8pm. This annual autumn affair includes everything from food, music, drinks, and shopping. So round up the whole family and walk, grab a car  or take the bus to 13th street. The main attraction is happening at the intersection of 13th and Sansom but continues through Chestnut and Locust. A moon bounce for kids, four entertainment stages and pop-up shops will be a definite hit for this weekend. Don’t miss out!

TASTE: BLOKTOBERFEST
Ring in the fall season with a fun festival packed with food trucks, local bands, and craft beer! This all day event is happening on South Street tomorrow, October 3rd between noon and 9 pm. If you don’t want the rain to dilute your favorite drink then enjoy the local restaurants lining the street or purchase a “Beer Bracelet” to check out the designated drinking area. Let everyone have a god time and use the suggested bus routes to get your group to and from the event.

GLAMORIZE: BERNIE ROBBINS JEWELERS MOVING SALE
You know what they say, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Surprise that special someone this upcoming week or get ahead on your holiday shopping with the Moving Sale at Bernie Robbins Jewelers! Receive up to 70% off on engagement rings, diamond earrings and more. This event is being held at both Pennsylvania locations in Randor and Newtown between October 3rd and 10th. Don’t miss the additional store hours on Sunday, October 4th to end this weekend off bright.

FITNESS FUN: #FlashBootCamp
The cold weather may be setting into the city and we’re all pulling out our favorite oversized sweaters, but that doesn’t mean we have to lose those summer bods that we all worked so hard for these past few months! Flash Boot Camp is being held every Saturday morning from October 3rd to November 21st at The Market and Shops at Comcast Center. You can’t beat switching up your workout routine for only $10 per class. And if that didn’t make up your mind maybe the $10 voucher that you receive for The Market and Shops at Comcast Center will! Use the hashtag #FlashBootCamp in your social media pots and enjoy your next session for FREE!

GO: MADONNA IN ATLANTIC CITY
Just because the summer is over doesn’t mean you should skip a trip to the Boardwalk! Don’t miss Madonna at the Boardwalk City Hall in Atlantic City this Saturday, October 3rd. The Queen of Pop is passing through for her Rebel Heart Tour and the tickets are on sale now. So grab your friends, put on your best heels and take the weekend to get away and enjoy a performance from your favorite “Material Girl”.

NEXT WEEK SNEAK PEEK: FRENCH WINE FAIR
What better way to wind down your week than with a well deserved glass of wine? The French Wine Fair is being held next Thursday night, October 8th, at the Sofitel Luxury Hotel in Philadelphia. There’s no way you can pass up a night on the town with the company of seven different wine distributors! Discounted tickets are available on Travelzoo so don’t miss out. A tall stemmed glass and a cheese board has never sounded more enjoyable. Join the party as Sofitel Philadelphia is celebrating wine and the French grape harvest the entire month of October!
