Get Up Offa That Thing

…and let Street satisfy your culture cravings every week with these Philly arts finds.

Pumpkinland Harvest Festival
Linvilla Orchards
137 W. Knowlton Rd.
Now through 11/4
$6–8
Now that Halloween’s passed, ditch that triple–X costume for a triple dosage of fall nostalgia — pumpkin patches, apple picking and corn mazes can all be found at Linvilla Orchard’s final open weekend. And don’t worry about getting cold, because you can snuggle up on a hayride with hot apple cider for a fall treat without any tricks.

Election 2012
National Constitution Center
525 Arch St.
Activities on 11/6 (Election Day), Exhibit ongoing
You’ve read enough tweets to feel like you almost watched the debates, but you can actually get informed at the National Constitution Center’s 2012 Election Headquarters. Platform breakdowns, up–to–date news stories and interactive voting booths (that tell you which candidate best aligns with your views) await, and the presidential crafts and activities are plentiful.

Phillybloco
The Barnes Foundation
2025 Benjamin Franklin Pkwy.
11/2, 8:30–9:30 p.m.
Castle isn’t the only place to find fun with an international twist: shake up First Friday at this Brazilian festa (that’s “fiesta” in Portuguese, for the uninformed). Learn some sweet Brazilian dance moves to the tune of live drums, samba music and bossa nova. ¡Ay, Caramba!

The Liar
Lantern Theater Company
923 Ludlow St.
Now through 12/2
$10 Student Rush, $30–38 Regular
Take a break from telling your own lies (“Blackboard was down last night, so I couldn’t submit!”) and watch someone else’s unfold. “The Liar” opens this weekend at your friendly neighborhood theater, telling the story of Dorante, who lies his way though this Parisian love story. Put that student discount to work!
