HALLOWEEN: Halloween Nestival @ Nest Philly, 10/30
Check this space all week for our picks of the 2011 Philly-Halloween-event litter.
Nest Philly’s No. 1 rule — parents have a right to have fun with their kids — is the driving force behind their first-ever Halloween Nestival. The event pays tribute to moms, dads and children with not-so-spooky ‘nestivities’ — everything from a Black Cat Treasure Hunt and balloon-making class to Halloween storytelling sessions. In fact, the only screams you'll hear from this soiree will be from scary face painting and a jam session of kid-friendly tunes. But don't worry, parents. If "Monster Mash" medleys aren’t your cup of tea, Chef David Katz of Meme will be there handing out chocolate-coconut macaroon spider treats and other wholesome desserts. That sounds doable, huh? Sun., Sun., Oct. 30, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., $10, Nest Philadelphia, 1301 Locust St., 215-545-6378, nestphilly.com.
