DRPA Extends Bridge Walkway Hours For XPN Festival

Want a reason to bike to Camden?

The Delaware River Port Authority has extended the hours of the beautiful SOUTH walkway of the Ben Franklin Bridge to accommodate the late performances for the Xponential Festival in Wiggins Park on the Camden Waterfront.

From Friday July 24 to Sunday July 26th the bridge walkway will be open until 11PM.

For their part WXPN is also encouraging attendees to arrive by bike.

Help the earth stay green and save your green by taking your bike to the festival.
Bike racks are available outside the festival, to provide a safe place for cyclist to store their equipment. While the Walt Whitman Bridge does not offer a bike path, you can use the North Walkway on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge (walkway hours are weather permitting), from 6am to 9pm (May through September).
