Just a few blocks away from Main Street Manayunk, Pretzel Park offers a little slice of nature in the midst of the city's hustle and bustle. The park also plays host to special events throughout the year, like the upcoming Manayunk Harvest Fest in Pretzel Park. On Saturday, October 14th at 10 a.m., Pretzel Park transforms into a haven for autumn fun.

Everyone is welcome at the festival, which kicks off with pumpkin carving. You can go on to design and stuff your own scarecrow and participate in the many other fall-themed activities, too. In between activities, head to Silverwood Street where Philly food trucks and local vendors will be lined up, offering a wide variety of fare. Then kick back in the park while listening to live music, or head down to Main Street and grab a drink at one of the eateries or bars. Many will be offering specials in honor of the Manayunk Harvest Fest.
