“New York is a place where people go to reinvent themselves; Philadelphia is a place where people discover who they are.” – Chef Peter McAndrews
We have a really fun day in Philadelphia planned for our Exchange participants!
“I love the dignity in the name Philadelphia, but at heart, we’re Philly.” – Lisa Scottoline
Set for Monday, April 11 – you are going to get a peek of all the things that make Philadelphia the Philly we all love. The cost of $20 per person covers your round-trip bus ticket and our activities for the day.
One of the major highlights of the Finland Exchange is our Bus Trip to New York City.
“I look out the window and I see the lights and the skyline and the people on the street rushing around looking for action, love, and the world’s greatest chocolate chip cookie, and my heart does a little dance.” — Nora Ephron
Set for Tuesday, April 12 – this is a day packed with all things Big Apple. The cost of $75 per person covers your round trip bus ticket, a highly-rated boat tour of the island with Circle Cruises, and a free day of fun in the best city in the world (after Philadelphia and Helsinki, of course.)
Note: because we will be on and off a bus in the city throughout the day, and walking the streets, a parent chaperone is required on this trip.
Update: ticket sales have closed for this event. We will be sending out information on the event to those attending as soon as it is available.

A note about COVID-19 protocols in the city and the Wells Fargo Center

3:00 p.m. Once off the ice, players and families will head to the East Food Hall for our exclusive Finland Exchange pre-game party. Food and drinks will be offered by several of the Wells Fargo vendors on a pay-as-you-go basis. We are working on a few surprises during this time, including entertainment for the kids.
5:30 p.m. Let’s head over to the ice to watch the pre-game warmup!
7:00 p.m. It’s game time – the Flyers will take on the New York Rangers. Go Flyers!
