Philadelphia Things to Do – Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest

This isn’t your average ice skating rink. Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest is a complete riverfront winter wonderland, that transforms Penn’s Landing into the top attraction in the city. From now through March 6, 2016, this event will be open to merry-makers and revelers. Along with an Olympic-size ice skating rink, you’ll find a ski chalet-style lodge, winter garden, warming huts, holiday trees and fire pits. Grab a seat on the deck that surrounds the ice rink, and enjoy delicious gourmet food, cocktails, and holiday beverages. At night, the area is lit up beautifully – and there will also be special events throughout the season. Highlights of the Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest include:

  • Huge ice skating rink with views of the Delaware River and Benjamin Franklin Bridge
  • The Lodge, an on-site restaurant with ski chalet-style heated tents, comfy seating, indoor fireplaces and full bar service
  • Arcade games and oversized games
  • Daily music and entertainment
  • Fire pits and winter warming huts
