The 2013 Midtown Village Fall Festival - coming Sunday, Oct. 6 from noon to 8 p.m. - is shaping up as the biggest in its eight years.

For the first time, Chestnut Street from 12th to Broad will be closed to traffic, as will 13th Street from Chestnut to Locust and Sansom to Juniper along 12th Street. 

One hundred businesses and vendors will cover the eight blocks, and there will be numerous stages of music and dance. A 20-piece samba band from Hard Rock Cafe will perform, and Nest gym will create a “Little Villagers’ area with activities for the kids. Macy’s will feature a pink fashion show, more than 50 crafters will display their artwork, Raw will host Sumo wrestling, Finn McCool’s will offer rides on a mechanical bull, and Fergie's will host the robot R2D2.

Then there's the pink beer. Saison de Rose, an ale from the local Free Will Brewing, will premiere during the festival at McGillin's and Bru. Proceeds of the grapefruit, ginger and hibiscus-flavored beer will benefit the Rena Rowan Cancer Center, part of the Abramson Center at Penn Medicine.
