PHOTOS: Check Out Winterfest Down On The Delaware This Weekend
Spruce Street Harbor Park (SSHP) put Philadelphia on the map internationally this past summer with acolades rolling in regarding the reinvigoration of a waterfront too often forgotten and disconnected from our urban fabric. SSHP made waves not only because of the amount of people it brought in, but because of the quality and variety of programming (arcades, bocce, hammocks, food and drink) but because of the quality of the build outs. Guatemalan hammocks, string lights, cascading LEDs all transformed a disused section of the Delaware into not only an effective public space, but a showcase of what is possible with planning and vision.
If you liked SSHP but haven't been to Winterfest, do yourself a favor this weekend and make your way down to the Delaware. Earlier this week as snow lightly flocked the city, I got some great shots of the space. This weekend a Brewfest means not only can you enjoy another the amenities of Winterfest, but you can do so with free booze!
