Halloween at Cherry Street Pier

October 4–31
Location: Cherry Street Pier

Get ready for super spooky fun all month long on the Philadelphia Waterfront in honor of everyone’s favorite frightful day – Halloween.

From a Ghost Ship appearing on the Delaware River at dusk, to Sip N’ Paints with a creepy twist, and a haunting disco dance party, the Waterfront is a one-stop-shop for a fang-tastic time.

Plus, enjoy FREE spooky activities at the Pier. Stock up on treats at our FREE candy bar (while supplies last), or concoct mystical potions with Lotus 8 from 6 pm to 9 pm (while supplies last). Get scary in front of the camera with sinister selfies in our awesome photo booth by CityBooth from 7 pm to 11 pm. It’s going to be a frightfully, fantastic night!
