Penguin ice sculptures added to Blue Cross River Rink

    Looking for something to do while you have a couple of days off? Philadelphia’s snowless streets may not look very much like winter, but the Blue Cross RiverRink at Penn’s Landing has installed some ice sculptures to entice skaters into a seasonal mood. 

    Artists have created a set of penguins from 300-lb. blocks of ice using chain saws and power tools. 

    The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation boasts that the rink is the city’s only outdoor Olympic-size public skating rink.
