PA Coast Day, Delaware River Festival Sept. 15 In Philadelphia, Camden

The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary will hold the annual Pennsylvania Coast Day festival on September 15 at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia and the Camden Adventure Aquarium from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Since 2000, PDE has held this fun free, family event along the Delaware River in partnership with the Pennsylvania Coastal Zone Management, the Philadelphia Water Department and many other local organizations.
This year, PDE proudly adds a new partner-- the Alliance for Watershed Education-- for their annual River Days.
The Delaware River Festival will be a combined day of events, with Coast Day on the Philadelphia side of the river, and AWE’s River Days kickoff on the other side near Camden Adventure Aquarium.
AWE is a regional initiative of 23 associated environmental education centers throughout the Delaware River Watershed.
Each year AWE holds River Days, a month long series of events to promote its mission of providing education and recreational opportunities that inspire personal action.
This year’s River Days will kick-off in Camden with the waterfront festival, hosted by the Center for Aquatic Sciences. Together, River Days and Coast Day will create a coast-to-coast celebration of the Delaware River.
Attendees will be able to visit both sides of the river by riding the RiverLink Ferry free of charge, and participate in a morning bike ride over the Ben Franklin Bridge.
The fun starts at 10 a.m. in Camden and 11 a.m. in Philadelphia. Coast Day attendees can expect a variety of on-the-water experiences, free face painting, an exciting scavenger hunt with prizes, crafts for kids, and the opportunity to help with a brand new Philadelphia Mural Arts project.
River Days attendees can expect live music, games and crafts, hands-on displays, a beer garden, and the opportunity to bike along the waterfront. There’s a great time in store for everyone on both sides of the river.
