CCD SIPS at Dilworth Park presented by Hornitos® Tequila is back this year with live DJ entertainment and an extended space. For the first time, the Rothman Orthopaedics Roller Rink will be open for skating during the event, available only to CCD SIPS guests 21 and older. A valid ticket is required for skating and will be available for purchase onsite. The park’s colorful aesthetic will be amplified by an immersive photo experience and fun décor. The Air Grille Garden will offer $7 Hornitos® Tequila cocktails, $6 wine and $5 Kona Big Wave beer, plus weekly food specials. The park’s festive overlay will only be set up on Wednesday nights during the SIPS season, so visitors are encouraged to stop by before it’s gone. 

On Wednesday, May 24 from 5 p.m.-7 p.m., CCD will host an official CCD SIPS Preview Party in partnership with Wooderice Philly! The one-night-only special event, located at Pagano’s Market and Bar (2001 Market Street,) will feature exclusive SIPS pricing, live DJ entertainment, giveaways and samplings courtesy of Hornitos® Tequila.
