RiverFest, a free public event held at Glen Foerd along the Delaware River in Philadelphia this Saturday, will offer visitors an afternoon of fun filled with hands-on environmental and art educational activities welcoming to everybody, including kayaking for all.
A collage and drawing activity for all ages will be led by Philadelphia-based artist Sarah Hunter. Participants will get to incorporate creatures that live on the shores and in the waters of the Delaware River into their works.
Kids will also get a chance to fully explore the recently redesigned children’s play area as well as joining the resident bee expert for hive demonstrations.
Visitors will also be able to purchase drinks and food from Wokworks food truck and treats from Mister Softie.
Glen Foerd is an 18-acre public park and historic site that is perfectly situated along the Delaware River in Philadelphia. It was built in 1850 and enlarged at the start of the twentieth century.
The estate offers various attractions including historic gardens, an Italianate-Classical Revival style mansion – which will be open for free self-guided tours, – and several additional structures.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket or chairs to fully enjoy the outdoors.
