    Here’s a look at stories NewsWorks will cover this upcoming week in Northwest Philadelphia…

    1. The Harry Potter Festival returned to Chestnut Hill on Friday and Saturday. NewsWorks was there, so you can expect a full report involving Defense Against the Dark Arts classes, Quidditch games and the like. Among the non-Potter festivals of which we’ll have coverage are the Harvest on Henry Festival and the Greene Street Friends School’s Annual Fall Fair.

    2. So Crepe, a savory and sweet authentic French creperie, is coming to the now-vacant space at 4357 Main St. The creperie will be the only one in Manayunk after Cavo Creperie closed in 2009. We’ll tell you all about it.

    3. Tired of the morning commute to school in the car? Biking and walking to our city schools is a benefit to us all: Children (and adults) get some physical activity, it is environmentally friendly and it helps minimize dangerous car congestion around schools. We’ll have a parenting post about bike-to-school nuances this upcoming week.

    4.  Soccer Sisters United, a youth-soccer program in Germantown, hosts a pair of matches on Sunday. We’ll check back in on a program which brings a positive air to one side of the central Germantown park.
