For party animals who want an extra dose of energy in their parties (can someone say…kids?!) we have several suggestions. For literally the coolest birthday party ever, head over to IceWorks in Aston. With several party packages to choose from and party hosts who assist with set-up, serving and clean up, the party is really a treat for Mom and Dad too. Corporate events are welcome and feature two hours of private ice time, rental skates for up to thirty people, meeting room space, use of a professional coach for forty-five minutes and – maybe the best part – a customized, personal chocolate bar for each employee.
The Brandywine Conference and Visitors Bureau is available to assist you in your site search. Descriptions of hundreds of locations are included in the listing sections of this guide, and links to many of their web sites are available online at www.brandywinecvb.org. For individuals responsible for planning corporate events or large group tours, the event specialists at the BCVB can help with questions you may have and arrange customized tours of event locations.
Our area has been entertaining visitors for centuries – all the way back to when William Penn and his Quakers first landed on the banks of the Delaware River. Even then, the Native Americans who greeted them had spectacular scenery as a setting for that historical occasion. Whether you are looking for an event for hundreds with a view of the water or a gathering of a few in a kid-friendly attraction – and anything in between – Delaware County’s Brandywine Country is the place to be. We look forward to being the place where your celebration memories are made.
