River Beer Garden at Race Street Pier will accompany 'Ghost Ship,' a public art installation at the Delaware River waterfront.

"Ghost Ship," a large 3D hologram of an 18th-century ship, will appear at Race Street Pier through the Halloween season. The public art installation is expected to be a popular attraction during its short run at the Delaware River waterfront.

To accompany it, a beer garden from FCM Hospitality (Parks on Tap, Morgan's Pier, Harper's Garden) serving both food and drink is set to open at the pier.
