SquareBurger proves to be overhyped
Franklin Square is one of the more whimsical destinations in Philadelphia. Between the carousel, the prominent fountain, and the miniature golf course featuring replicas of notable Philly monuments, an establishment like Stephen Starr’s SquareBurger fits right in.

Pumpkinfest brought smiles to all attendees
Admit it: Few things are more adorable than seeing a flock of children toddle around in princess and Buzz Lightyear costumes, with puffy jackets and tights bundled over frilly dresses. This chilly pre-Halloween weekend saw youngsters and their families flocking to Franklin Square Park for Historic Philadelphia’s first-ever PumpkinFest. A fundraiser for the Square, it was filled with holiday fun for the little ones, including picking pumpkins from a patch to paint, decorating cupcakes with candy galore, going bananas on a moon bounce and much more. SquareBurger provided seasonal nosh for the event, including some fantastic vegetarian Sloppy Joes and hot cider. A very special guest of honor, our very own Phillie Phanatic, even made an appearance in Batman attire to lead a costume parade around the park.
