This is the day Pennsville gears up for all year long! Saturday after Labor Day the town is in it's glory. The festive day begins with a parade that starts at the shopping center and ends----can you guess where? Yes, Riverview Beach Park! At the park, food tents are set up. Games can be played, like dunk the teacher! Bands play all day long on the gazebo. Skanky Skelly's roving amusement rides set up their thrilling carnival rides down by the river. You can bring a picnic table the night before to stake out your own space!
Unique Suggestions: Stay for the fireworks. They are the best part of the day. Guaranteed you will lose some of your hearing!
This walkway is the best part of the park. Too bad it's only about 1/4 mile long.
Unique Suggestions: We used to sing this song as kids:
"There goes (name) floatin' down the Delaware, chewin' on her underwear, can't afford another pair, six weeks later she's sittin' on a polar bear, still chewin' on her underwearrrrrrrrr." (I don't sing it anymore!)
Fun Alternatives: Don't come
Riverview Beach Park
------used to be an amusement park. Closed down in the 60's. We ran wild through it in the 70's. Turned it into a town park in the 80's. It has a pond, a mile long track, a gazebo (for weddings-ooh-la-la), picnic tables for company picnics and my favorite part- a riverwalkway.
Unique Suggestions: Keep your dog(s) on a leash! Pennsville cops don't have much to do, so they love looking for leashless Fidos and Fidas.
Watch where you walk--Canadian Goose poop everywhere. (and my dog likes to eat it! --sooo gross!) What's wrong with Canada anyway? Why are all these geese relocating?
Fun Alternatives: ummm, there is no alternative in Pennsville!
