Enjoy a true Winterfest Brewfest 


PHILADELPHIA, PA (January 17, 2019)--Last Sunday we enjoyed a real Snowy Bowie, Screen Shot 2018-11-22 at 11.39.28and it's looking like this weekend will be a true Winterfest Brewfest. Luckily, Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest only gets better with a layer of snow. This Saturday and Sunday, you can enjoy it all with samples from your favorite local breweries or bring the family out for Storytime at the Lodge. Looking for something late night to keep you warm? Check out our Latin Nights at the Lodge. And if you're a planner who's already got Valentine's Day on your mind, look no further than Sweetheart Skates. And of course, Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest is open every day through March 3rd with extended hours on MLK Day for all your ice skating and wintertime fun.
