The Midway, which was added last summer, includes a 60-ft. Ferris wheel, carousel and boardwalk games.

Summerfest also includes a beach-like landscape surrounding the rink with lounge chairs, an arcade, Chickie’s and Pete’s Waterfront Crabshack, the Franklin Fountain Clubhouse Cabin and bars serving beer and cocktails.

There will also be summer classics like hot dogs, pizza, fried Oreos and funnel cake. New this year, will be deep-fried scrapple and deep-fried Tastykake cupcakes.

Admission to Summerfest is free. Roller skating, mini-golf and boardwalk games and rides are ticketed, but if you're an Independence Blue Cross cardholder, you can skate for free.

On opening night, there will be a special skating event. During "Roller Boogie," vinyl classics will play all evening.
