Do you know what Midtown Village is? I didn't either until this time last year, when Midtown Village hosted last fall's festival. At any rate, it's an organization of businesses either on or clustered around 13th Street. Now when I first moved to Philly 12 years ago, 13th Street was not necessarily an area where you'd want to hang out. But over the years, it's been transformed, with many lovely restaurants and boutiques. Among my personal favorites are Open House and Duross and Langel.
At any rate, Midtown Village is hosting its annual fall festival this Saturday, October 3rd, from 12p.m.-8p.m. at 13th and Sansom Streets. The event is rain or shine, and unfortunately, the weather forecast is calling for rain at the time of this post, but let's hope it holds out for awhile. There will be music, food and a "little villagers" area that I believe will involve a moonbounce. Because what party is complete without a moonbounce?
So let's do an anti-rain dance and head on over on Saturday. Turns out you don't have to leave the city to get in a little fall fun after all.
