Things to do this weekend

🍂 Harvest Weekend at Dilworth Park kicks off Friday and you know what that means: hay bales, pumpkin carvings, bratwurst and fall-themed speciality cocktails. Oh, and be sure to support local vendors at the Made in Philadelphia Market. The event runs through Sunday.

🌪️ "The Wizard of Oz Educational Exhibit" opens Friday at the Please Touch Museum. General admission ranges from $19-22, depending on the day you visit.

👟 Cheer on this year's runners taking on the annual 10-miler Broad Street Run through the heart of the city Sunday. And check out the street closures and parking restrictions.

🇮🇹 The Italian American celebration will kick off at 1:30pm on Sunday in South Philly, starting at Broad Street and Snyder Avenue and proceeding to Marconi Plaza. A festival will follow.

🥁 Indigenous Peoples' Day Philly, Inc. will host its annual celebration from 11am-5pm on Monday at Shackamaxon (Penn Treaty Park), which will feature art, music performances, presentations and other activities.
