Enjoy a day of fun along the Delaware River that mingles old memories with beautiful new recreational areas. Join the Delaware County river communities — Tinicum, Eddystone, Chester, Ridley, and Marcus Hook –for this year’s Riverfront Ramble. Witness the changing face of the county’s waterfront, a region rich in history and brimming with the development of beautiful new parks. The 14-mile trail linking these communities will be included in the coastal zone bike trail, which will become part of the East Coast Greenway allowing bikers and hikers to traverse the entire eastern US coastline. All along the water’s edge you’ll find fabulous food; car, motorcycle & boat shows, tall ships; crafts; music; tours; races; contests; sports clinics; AND FUN. Boating is encouraged: whether it’s under sail, paddle or motor.

Due to the construction of the new Soccer Stadium, Chester’s Ramble Celebration will NOT take place at Barry Bridge Park. We will be moving all the fun to the Wharf at Rivertown! We will have entertainment, plus fabulous food and children’s activities in the huge parking area in front of the former PECO Plant, now called the Wharf at Rivertown

PARK LOCATIONS FOR 2009: (all are located on the Delaware River)
John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge in Tinicum
Governor Printz Park in Tinicum/Essington (Featuring River Rides at the adjacent Anchorage Marina)

NEW FOR 2009:
The Ramble is capped off each year with a string of evening concerts from three separate locations along the river, Barry Bridge Park in Chester, Market Square Memorial Park in Marcus Hook and Governor Printz Park in Tinicum. The concerts are followed by dazzling fireworks displays launched from all three locations! And our Living History Pirate Encampments will be growing into a full-fledged PIRATE FESTIVAL this year! Pirates will be invading every location this year, for special shows and demonstrations of sword fighting, cooking, and more. Plus don’t forget our special “SCHOOL FOR SCALYWAGS” which recruits and trains youngsters in the art of a Pirate’s Life!
