Encore: One More Weekend of Parks on Tap Confirmed at Lemon Hill
After such a successful first season of Parks on Tap, Philadelphia Parks and Rec, Fairmount Park Conservancy and FCM Hospitality are delighted to announce a special one weekend extension at Lemon Hill, Friday 5-10PM and Saturday + Sunday 12 to 10PM.
Parks on Tap is a mobile beer garden that has made its way through public spaces across the city. For anyone that did not make it to Lemon Hill in Fairmount Park last weekend, or to any Parks on Tap locations yet, here’s your last chance to experience it in 2016.
There will also be an encore Oktoberfest celebration all day on Sunday, October 9, featuring German beers and snacks from Mitch Prensky of Global Dish Caterers. And, Cheers, an authentic German Ompah band will perform from 5 to 9PM for a proper send-off of the season.
Lemon Hill is a historic mansion with views of both the center city skyline and the Schuylkill River. Lemon Hill mansion was built in 1800 as a summer retreat by Henry Pratt, a prosperous Philadelphia merchant. He named it “Lemon Hill” after the lemon trees in the greenhouse. After Henry Pratt’s death in 1838, Lemon Hill became the first private property acquired to protect the city’s water supply, and the home became the first park land formally acquired by the City for the creation of Fairmount Park.
Today, Lemon Hill is open for visitors between April and mid-December, Thursday – Sunday, 10AM – 4PM, no reservation required.
