A Day-By-Day Guide To Halloween In Philadelphia 2015

Get in the Halloween spirit the last two weekends of October

As one of the most historic cities in the country, Philadelphia has its fair share of ghost stories and haunted attractions.

In fact, last year Philadelphia was ranked the best city in the U.S. to be a vampire (we're not kidding) and is home to the biggest and best haunted house in the country.

Whether you’re looking for activities for pint-sized trick-or-treaters or blowouts for party-ready grown-ups, festivities are in high supply in neighborhoods across the city. Also on tap: haunted tours, a fantastic Halloween ball and more.

Start planning your Halloween costume, gather your friends and plan your Halloween weekends using our handy guide.
