Last night the Delaware River Waterfront Corp (DRWC) hosted a fundraiser preview party for Spruce Street Harbor Park presented by Univest/Valley Green Bank (SSHP) this summer.

Guests enjoyed specialty cocktails and wine in addition to unlimited delicious bites from vendors like Garces Group, serving Kobe Hot Dogs, ribs and my favorite Chifa fried chicken.

You'll also find Federal Donuts serving their popular donuts and friend chicken. There's also delicious ice cream from Franklin Fountain. They have all the fun things they had last year – a life-sized chess game, shuffle board and arcade games – and loads of places to sit and hang.
