Enjoy non-stop fun on the Delaware River Waterfront this Holiday Week
By Jarreau Freeman
Savor time off with family and friends and rekindle your favorite Philadelphia traditions with these top three (3) super festive holiday happenings on the Philadelphia Waterfront.
Cozy up in the Lodge sipping cider and eating Crabfries from Chickie’s & Pete’s or boneless spare ribs from Black Iron BBQ, playing boardwalk games and rides at Skelly’s Amusements, or spending more time creating memories by the holiday tree for TikTok or the Gram (don’t forget to tag Winterfest on social media at @ibxriverrink).
Hurry and secure your New Year’s Eve plans by reserving your tickets for not one, but three, New Year’s Eve bashes on the Delaware River Waterfront before they sell out.
All parties include spectacular views of the New Year’s Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront celebrating 30 seasons of Independence Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest at 6 pm and midnight.
BONUS: If you're looking for other festive New Year's Eve activities ring in 2024 on the water during the NYE Cruise on the Spirit of Philadelphia! Embark on a one-of-a-kind celebration. Whether you choose to kick off the day with brunch, the early dinner seating with the kids, or the open bar and champagne toast dinner, count down to the New Year with dining, dancing, fantastic views of the NYE fireworks, and unparalleled views on the Delaware River.
The festivities along the Waterfront will be a great kickoff, or capstone, to what is sure to be a magnificent weekend of holiday splendor across Philadelphia. Use VisitPhilly.com/NewYearsEveInPhiladelphia to make your New Year’s plans today.
