Hungry Human Hippos on Ice (Rescheduled to 2/12)

calendar icon Feb. 12, 2022
clock icon 12pm – 4pm
map marker icon The Wharf Ice Rink


Join DC Fray and The Wharf for a fun-filled afternoon on the ice as we bring the iconic kids game to life with Hungry Human Hippos courtesy of our friends at BEVY Long Drink.

Teams of four to six people compete in a bracket style tournament to advance to the finals by sending your “hippo” out to gather “food” balls while the rest of the team gets them in your basket. The team with the most food at each round wins and advances on for their chance at Hippo glory. Costumes encouraged—get your Hippo on! 

While you’re waiting your turn, don’t miss the chance to try the new BEVY Long Drink—a refreshing citrus take on the traditional Finnish beverage. Did you know Finland is considered the happiest country on earth? This could be the reason.

Space is limited and this event does sell out. Sign up for the event on
