That’s right folks, it’s BACK! I could not be more excited. Philadelphia’s official opening for spring and summer has finally been given a date. May 12 just got a bunch more exciting! Spruce Street Harbor will be opening to the public. Can you tell I’m pumped?
Spruce Street Harbor is free to the public. You pay for drinks and food as you go. Hammocks and dining space are first come, first serve and some people do spend a long time there so be patient. The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation sponsors the coolest thing Philly has to offer (in my opinion). With floating barges and over the water seating, you can literally spend all day just relaxing, eating and drinking with friends. Local eaterys such as Franklin Fountain (YUM), Garces Group, Chickie’s and Pete’s, Federal Donuts are all set to return to the amazing setting.
Not enough to convince you? A large draft selection will be set to the rotation draft line and a rotating cocktail list is set to debut as well. Wine will be set to a seasonal list.
Still not enough? Did I mentional that this year they are adding an additonal 25 hammocks due to popular demand.
Opening weekend will be entertaining guests with a three-day-long event of tight-ropes, and an aerial show by the Philly Circus, a magic show, and live music.
Make sure you get down there because closing weekend is October 1st and it fast approaches even if we like it or not!
