Firebird Festivial

We will meet for appetizers or drinks and free appetizers downstairs at PJ Ryans   . (We also have tables for dinner available on the first floor ). If you want to have dinner there, they will be setting up a full dinner menu for Suburban Philly Adventures and Events.

After dinner and drinks we will head over to watch the burning. Then back to the bar for a night cap and to socialize and warm up.

We will have our own room for the 125 people we normally have coming. If you have ever been to this festival you know that finding places that are not filled is not easy.

After drinks we will then walk down the the festival.

We will end back at the bar for a nite cap back at the bar.

During the day and into the evening

    Where does the bus leave from?

    5 days ago

    • Paul 😎

      Anne, They run shuttle buses 🚃 (every 15 minutes?) from the center of town (near Molly McGuires) up to Friendship Field where they burn the Firebird. Otherwise, it's a one mile walk. This is so you can enjoy the festival in town and then easily get a ride to the 🔥Firebird🔥 and back.

      Oh, Thanks, Paul, I didn't know that. I thought I'd just walk everywhere, but if it's a mile...each way, I think I'll take the bus! I wanted to get there early, but wasn't able to, leaving now, so I wouldn't have time to do that much of a walk either, I'm sure. I didn't know the Firebird was so far away from the rest of the festival, so good that they have busses. Are the busses free?? Also, I'd looked up the restaurant we're meeting at & it says they have a lot of parking in a lot. Can we park in that lot, or at least try to...do you know?? I guess I'll just follow the crowds! Leaving in a couple of minutes...may not be too early, but at least should be there well before the Firebird/Phoenix is lit!! See you all soon!
