These two months between the closing of Summerfest and the opening of Winterfest are rough, but we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The Delaware River Waterfront Corp. is bringing back Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest for the season on Nov. 27, and it will stay open every day — every day! including holidays! — through Feb. 28.

But we’re not just excited about the rink itself, of course. Winterfest also has food and drink, cozy places to hang out, DJs, activities for the kids, and more.
