Toasting Summer Farewell

The leaves will soon be coloring our wonderful city from the summer greens to the vibrant yellows, oranges, and reds. It’s one of my favorite times of year to host delicious food tours. The summer’s heat will soon be pushed out by the autumn breeze, and we don’t have to worry about our winter wardrobes weighing us down as we stroll the streets of Philly in the Fall. It’s exhilarating.

Celebrating Fall with Festivities and Food

There is so much happening throughout Philadelphia during the Fall Season. It’s a time when events bring the city streets alive. Add some great food, and you cannot have a better day.

Chestnut Hill Fall Arts Festival


Sunday, September 30, 2018The Chestnut Hill Fall for the Arts Festival, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m., welcomes in the autumn season with a marketplace event to hosts 150 artists sharing their artistic passions. As I said, it’s a wonderful time to stroll the streets of this majestic neighborhood of Philadelphia. Enjoy an afternoon of art, music, and shopping.


Friday, October 5th, 2018 – Chestnut Hill Conservancy & Historical Society hosts its second Night of Lights from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. To celebrate the local history, the commercial district of Chestnut Hill transforms into an interactive, theatrical event on a night lit up with illuminating lights.
