You can participate by having non-food treats available on Halloween and placing a teal pumpkin in front of your house (teal pumpkins are available at Target for about $8 or you can paint your own). You can find more information and register your home as a participant at The Roxborough Manayunk Teal Pumpkin Project.

The Philadelphia area is a great place to live and work and I love sharing all that Philadelphia has to offer. From our unique neighborhoods and towns, great parks, amazing restaurants and nightlife, museums, and events there’s no shortage of things to do and see in, and near, Philadelphia. Since 2010, I’ve been helping people buy and sell their homes in the Philadelphia area specializing in Center City, Northwest Philadelphia, and the Montgomery County suburbs bordering the city. Outside of being a Realtor®, I’m a dad to an amazing little girl, husband to an amazing wife, and dog-dad to Frida. Together, we enjoy taking advantage of everything that Philadelphia has to offer and exploring the many parks, festivals, and events in the city. Since 2017, I’ve been supporting KenCrest through volunteer efforts including organizing cleaning and painting days at their community homes, decorating for the holidays at children’s transitional homes, and coordinating fundraising and toy drives to support their efforts.
Need to buy or sell a home in the Philadelphia area? I’ve been helping home buyers and sellers from the City to the Suburbs since 2010. Call me at 215-839-6034 and let’s talk!
