EDGMONT — Flight On Ice announced the return of their pop-up outdoor “real” ice skating rink to Edgmont, bringing a season full of festive family-fun starting in mid-November. For the second year in a row, Flight On Ice has committed to donating a portion of the rink’s proceeds to the Delaware County Veterans Memorial Association.

The Energy Transfer Veterans Memorial Rink is at 4901 West Chester Pike next to Starbucks and Bonefish Grill at the Shoppes at Marville. The rink debuted last season, delighting thousands of guests, and has since been voted as the Best of Delco 2022 Fun Day Family Outing.

The Flight On Ice team plans to bring even more family-fun entertainment to the rink this year with ice skating sessions, fire pit lounge areas, heated private event tents, nightly programming featuring local entertainers, theme nights, and food and beverages.

A portion of the proceeds from both rink sales and sponsorships will benefit the veterans association, located just blocks away from the rink. Last season, Flight On Ice raised over $55,000 for the association to support the memorial and local veterans. Jon Schaffer, president of Flight Entertainment, said the organization hopes to double the goal this year and raise over $100,000.

In addition to the Edgmont venue, there will be at least three other Flight On Ice outdoor rink locations popping up throughout the region and a second possible Delaware County location to be announced soon.

Along with the Edgmont rink, the other locations that have been announced are at Vintner Wonderland at Renault Winery in Egg Harbor City, N.J.; Ice at Pier Village in Long Branch, N.J.; and the Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem.

The rinks will all open in mid-November and will remain open through February.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for individual and multiple rink locations. Family four-packs and season passes are also on sale. For more information, visit
