An Uncanny Evening on Friday the 13th - Atlas Obscura


An Uncanny Evening on Friday the 13th

Toast the Rail Park project and Timberland's Urban Greening initiative at a spooky soirée.

Join Atlas Obscura and Timberland on Friday the 13th for a spooky gathering at Roy Pitz-Barrel House. Over light bites and libations (including custom cocktails designed by Roy-Pitz’s mixologists), guests will be treated to a magical evening of tarot reading, storytelling, tunes by the West Philadelphia Orchestra and other evocative wonders. 

Ticket sales will be donated to the Center City District Foundation for their continued effort to transform the Rail Park into public green space for the community. In Philadelphia, Timberland has committed to restoring a portion of the Rail Park that matches the retail footprint of its store in the city. Since Phase One of the project broke ground last October, Timberland has supported the effort, and on October 13, they will be backing the the cause with hands-on volunteer service. 

In addition to Friday the 13-themed eerie delights, guests will be invited to learn more about the Rail Park’s history and future development.
