PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Tourism officials and historic reënactors rubbed shoulders this afternoon at the Betsy Ross House to toast some special — and spooky — events coming up next month in Old City.

“There are tales of wailing women, ghost children playing in graveyards, and there’s that story about the ghost rider,” says an actor playing Revolutionary War veteran Col. Daniel Morgan as he tells a ghost story, one of many yarns he’ll spin as he leads the Tippler’s Tour — a weekly, two-hour historic pub crawl.

Amy Needle of Historic Philadelphia Inc. says it’s just one of several special fall events:

Independence After Hours also runs Fridays and Saturdays, which is dinner at City Tavern, and then your guide gets you into the State House,” also known as Independence Hall, where you can expect not-so-spectral appearances by a few founding fathers.

And there are special attractions for the kids at Franklin Square, including “Spooky Mini-Golf,” a train ride, and a pumpkin patch (below).

” And you’ve got to try the pumpkin shake at Squareburger,” Needle adds.
