Old Man Winter may not have departed from Philadelphia quite yet, but this weekend is the last chance to take a lap around Philadelphia’s only open-air public ice skating rink, the Blue Cross RiverRink at Penn’s Landing.
Penn’s Landing’s Blue Cross RiverRink celebrated 20 years on the Delaware River waterfront this winter with a veritable winter wonderland — not only ice skating, but also fire pits, hot food, warming libations and live entertainment.
The RiverRink closes for the season on Sunday, March 2, but not before offering the chance to take advantage of the final week of outdoor ice skating and good times at The Lodge, a 500-person warming tent and American-style beer garden with food from chef George Sabatino.
The Lodge will be open with grab-and-go snacks (drinks, hot dogs, cookies, chips), craft brews, hot food and — yup! — fire pits with s’mores on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (weather permitting).
Plus, to help close out the season on a high note, Visitphilly.com presents free admission presented by Visitphilly.com to the RiverRink during its last weekend through March 2.
Just enter the code “VISITPHILLY” at the online checkout anytime now through closing day to save the $3 admission fee on skate sessions from February 24 through March 2. Note that the $10 fee still apply for skate rentals, or bring your own skates.
See you on the ice!
