Philly’s 87th annual Easter Promenade

Philadelphia's Easter parade started all the way back in 1931. Since then, it has migrated from Rittenhouse Square to the Gallery to South Street — where it now draws thousands of people. MC David Henri will return to lead the procession, along with Mayor Jim Kenney. Expect costumes, candy and lots of color.

Where: South Street at Passyunk to Headhouse Square

When: April 1, 2018 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
