Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest closes for the season on Monday, September 3rd (don't worry though, it will re-open as Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest on November 23rd to celebrate 25 years!!!). Even if you've already been to the rink this summer, there are a TON of things to try through Labor Day Weekend. 

  1. Grab a group of friends or the family for a roller skating session - we've got traditional quads or inline skates for you to rent (or you can bring your own).
  2. Sing, skate, and dance along to all-MJ, all-night on Wednesday to celebrate Michael Jackson's birthday. The party will feature a Michael Jackson impersonator, live DJ, special giveaways, and the new Moonwalk cocktail.
  3. Take a ride on the Ferris Wheel for amazing views of the skyline and river.
  4. Get down on Friday night with Roller Boogie featuring Universal Cave's Brian Hart Cassidy.
  5. Beat the heat with something cool and delicious from Franklin Fountain (we'd strongly recommend the milkshakes).
  6. Help us Kick the Keg! $5 draft beers all day Sunday and Monday. Keg kickers will win Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest prize packages.
  7. Follow us on Instagram because we're doing our final giveaway of the season and there will be plenty more this winter. 
  8. Indulge in the famous Chickie's and Pete's Crabfries and a drink while watching the roller dancers show off their moves.
  9. Win a giant stuffed prize for that special someone at the boardwalk-style games OR defeat that special someone at a game of air hockey in the arcade.
  10. Take the classic summer photo in the #visitphilly Big Red Chair.
  11. We've got the exclusive on fried Tastykakes! Be sure to try one before Monday!
  12. Practice your putting skills at our mini-golf course.  
  13. Choose your spot wisely at the rink for the final night of fireworks of the summer. You can even check out a free concert by the United States Army Band Downrangebeforehand at the Great Plaza at Penn's Landing. 

And don't forget, Independence Blue Cross cardholders get free admission for up to 4 people. See you this weekend!
