The RiverLink Ferry leaves from 211 South Columbus Blvd, next to Independence Seaport Museum , and docks next to the Adventure Aquarium. From there, it's about an eight-minute walk to the venue where Lady Gaga, Lenny Kravitz and DJ Jazzy Jeff will perform in conjunction with the Democratic National Convention.
For those who drive to the ferry, 24-hour parking will be available at Penn's Landing at Columbus Blvd and Walnut Street or Columbus Blvd and Market Street.
A special $5 round trip "Camden Rising" pass can be purchased in advance here by clicking on "Purchase Tickets" and selecting the "Camden Rising – DNC Private Event." Tickets can also be purchased on-site the day of the event along with a "Camden Rising" concert ticket. Express service will begin at 10 a.m.
Doors at the BB&T Pavilion will open at 11 a.m. and the concert begins at 1 p.m., just hours before Hillary Clinton is expected to accept the Democratic nomination for president of the United States.
