It may be called the Schuylkill Soiree, but the Friends of the Schuylkill Banks’ Fall 2012 event is basically a fun and casual outdoor BBQ to kick off fall festival season Philadelphia-style.

What can you expect? The event will include two food trucks — Dapper Dog, Pitruco Pizza — in addition to Little Baby’s Ice Cream, Pure Sweets, local beer from Victory Brewing Company and local wine from Penns Woods Winery. Magners Irish Cider and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.

Dance to live music from local band Delco Nightingale, plus participate in lawn games and other outdoor activities. Feel free to BYO picnic blankets and chairs and enjoy the great casual outdoor vibe.
