Planning a party in Philadelphia? Try riverside ice skating!

Planning a party can be a lot of work! Sure, it’s economical to host at your own place. But the preparation, and the cleanup, and…the cleanup. There are a lot of other options for indoor venues, of course: bars, restaurants, party rooms. By late winter, though, being indoors is starting to get really old. And we’re all counting the days until we can be set free of the four walls and relax outside in the fresh air again. But it’s impossible to host your party outdoors in January…isn’t it?

Patrons enjoy the RiverRink

Nope! The Blue Cross RiverRink, on the Delaware River waterfront with a view of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, is one of Philadelphia’s most scenic winter spots. And it’s bookable for small or large private parties — outdoors! Skate rental is available for anything up to 500 guests, so there’s no chance it’s too small, and there’s a seasonal pop-up restaurant and bar for refreshments.

The choice is yours — massive party with everyone you know or just a small group of friends gathering to skate. It’s also a great venue for a birthday party or children’s party of any size. The rink offers a fun and memorable activity for everyone to participate in. They’ve got skates to rent from toddler size 8 on up to adult size 14 — ice skating is something that parents and kids alike can enjoy! Having an engaging, thrilling outdoor activity like skating, coupled with the on-site Lodge popup restaurant serving hot dogs, cookies, potato fritters, pulled pork sandwiches, and a variety of hot and cold drinks, takes the stress out of party planning and leaves only the sheer enjoyment of the season.

RiverRink PatronsWinter will be over before we know it, and with it the skating season. The polar vortex will depart once and for all, and both the hassles and the magic of winter will be behind us. So before spring is upon us, don’t miss your chance to have a dreamy skate along the Delaware Waterfront!
