Sunny spring days on riverfront Wilmington are here!

As I write this on April 4, 2023, it’s sunny and 74 degrees here at WJBR on Philadelphia Pike in Bellefonte!  I am daydreaming while I sit in my office writing this.   I look out my window and dream of taking a walk, run or bike ride on Riverfront Wilmington.

One of my favorite warm weather activities is riding my bike from Wilmington Riverfront.  All the way down to Old New Castle and back again!

Once back in Wilmington, it’s fun to grab a bite and a beer at the riverfront restaurants.

The rest of this week has temps in the 70’s, rising up into the 80’s and then back into the mid 50’s and 60’s this coming weekend.

It’s a great time of year to plan your walk or ride along the riverfront, and it’s only going to get better from here!

While I loved broadcasting live from Riverfront Wilmington during Holiday Magic at Riverbright Wilmington,  I am looking forward to doing the same during the warm weather months!

As we move deeper into warm weather season, there will be more to do on the river front.

Constitution Yards!

Constitution Yards, the seasonal beer garden, is now open.  This one of my favorite spots to stop after a bike ride.  Enjoy American Fare, a changing rotation of craft beers, specialty cocktails and wines.  Constitution Yards offers live music on Fridays and Saturdays and axe throwing!  Join them for BEER FEST 2023 on April 29th!

Petting Zoo!

If you go on Sunday April 16, 2023, there will be a Petting Zoo Event with The Little Farm.  Your kids will have a chance to interact with their friendly animals.  Look for it at Hare Pavilion from 1pm to 4pm.

Mini-Golf Returns!

It’s the return Riverwalk Mini-Golf on May 20th starting at 3pm!  I can’t wait!  This is how I spent Fathers Day last year!

Sunny Spring Days On Riverfront Wilmington!  I hope to see you out there!
