Penn's Landing RiverRink WinterFest
December 2013
For the better part of my life time (20 years to be exact), every Winter the Grand Plaza at Penn's Landing is converted to become the Blue Cross RiverRink. I've seen it on TV over and over, but have never visited it. I would likely pose a severe danger to myself and others if I strapped on ice skates. However, this year, they built an entire village around the rink called WinterFest. So we went and checked it out. It was a lot of fun. With the amount of trees and decorations they brought in, you'd never know you were on Penn's Landing.
