Get ready to grab your family and friends to enjoy the FREE admission winter wonderland festival with boardwalk rides and games, amazing food, hot drinks, and warming cabins, all under thousands of glittering Christmas lights with gorgeous views of the Delaware waterfront. It's truly everything the holiday season is supposed to be!

And you can't miss the tree lighting event powered by PECO! The Holiday Tree Lighting will take place Dec 2, with festivities from 6pm - 9pm.

While you're enjoying the amazing holiday vibes, you can grab some delicious food and drinks from Black Iron BBQ, Chickie's & Pete's, Skelly's Pizza and Dippers, and Skelly's Funnel Cake. There will also be cocktails, beers & wines, and hot drinks like hot chocolate, apple cider, and coffee. 

At the center of the Winterfest is the Philadelphia's favorite ice-skating rink. If you want to ice skate (which is a must), admission is only $5. If you need to rent skates, the rental fee is $12. Go ahead and reserve your ice skating tickets in advance HERE.
