Philadelphia's Midtown Village Hosts Fall Festival

The Midtown Village Fall Festival takes place in Philadelphia Oct. 6

Maybe it doesn’t have a song written about it like “Downtown” or “Uptown” does, but don’t count Midtown out. Philadelphia’s Midtown Village (formerly, affectionately known as the “Gayborhood") is an entity unto itself stretching from 13th St. between Locust & Chestnut; Sansom St. between Juniper & 12th; Locust St. between 12th & 13th; 12th St. between Locust & Walnut; and Drury Lane.

For the seventh year, the Midtown Village Fall Festival celebrates that area’s goods, goodies and services with members of the Philadelphia Fire Department’s Local 22 in attendance and accepting donations to help fund the Fallen Heroes Memorial in Franklin Square. Streets will be closed to vehicles during the event.

From restaurants such as El Vez, Barbuzzo, Sampan and Zavino to boutiques like Doggie Style, Open House and Scarlet Fiorella, the area’s top sellers will offer deals to throngs of attendees while, outside those doors, the Fire Department will operate an “Obama” versus “Romney” dunk tank.  That’s democracy in action.
