PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — We’re fully in fall, Philly. And we’ve got you covered with what’s happening in our neighborhoods and beyond this weekend.

Stop by—virtually or in person—for a myriad of festivals. Drop by the orchard, or maybe even a Will Smith-themed celebration. Or take the family to the drive-in.

Whatever you do, we’ve got our top picks for you below.

Festivals and Outdoors

The last day of the 10th annual Philly Tech Week is this Friday. Join and see a showcase of technology and innovation happening throughout greater Philadelphia, and get connected with some of the region’s most fascinating entrepreneurs.

Hayrides, apple picking and more—check out all there is to do this weekend at Linvilla Orchards. Or head over to Media, Pa., for St. George Greek Orthodox Church’s socially distant Greek Food Festival, through Sunday. This year, they’re featuring takeout-only Greek favorites. Simply order online for curbside pickup, or order from your car when you drive up.

Fall for autumn at the 6th annual Fall Festival at Morgan’s Pier this Friday. Table reservations are required to join in on the pumpkin carving, seasonal food and drink menus, DJ entertainment, and more.

And virtually, join a special Philly Fall Nature Fest this Saturday, celebrating Urban National Wildlife Refuge Day and River Days. From sip and paints, to fishing 101—there’s a little bit of something for everyone.

Celebrations and Drive-Ins

The Dolphin Tavern is Getting Jiggy with Will Smith, in a birthday celebration this Friday night, of course. Grab a to-go cocktail while enjoying a playlist set for the occasion.

It’s the final show of the Philly Drive-In at Fairmount Park, and on the big screen is “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”—a classic. Ferris’ aversion to attending school may even be relatable to our current social distancing rules. Don’t miss this showing on Friday. All drive-in screenings are first come, first served.

The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks is showing drive-in movies every weekend. On the silver screen this weekend are “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part 2)” on Friday night, and “Kane Brown” on Sunday night. Shows start at 8 p.m., and admission is $25 per vehicle.
