Elton Rohn

Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Elton Rohn is stopping by Philly to Party on the Pier. The group has headlined over 350 theatres and festival shows in North America, from Las Vegas to Atlantic City. After meeting the band, Elton’s long-time guitarist and musical director told them they were the best ’70s Elton John tribute in the world. Audiences are astounded at how close the resemblance is. Ron Camilleri, as Elton, provides the vocals, look and feel of a true Elton John performance. This show is a must-see; with its passion, energy and melodic harmonies, the band is the closest you’ll get to being back in the ’70s with Elton.

Fireworks viewing, plus food trucks and fun

Enjoy waterfront views of an incredible fireworks display above the Delaware River beginning at 9 p.m. Guests can grab a spot along the riverwalk and enjoy the colorful night sky.

Throughout the day, in addition to a live music performance, guests can enjoy a variety of fun family games and activities such as corn hole, giant games of pong, Connect 4, and Jenga, face painting and a balloon artist.

The fun will also feature an array of Philly’s local food truck favorites including Empanada House, Smoke Break BBQ, Rita’s Italian Ice and more.
