Where: Manayunk at Main St. 19147
When: February 20, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Check out this Philadelphia tradition in all its glory. Bring lawn chairs and post up on Broad Street as the parade begins in the morning and will end in the late afternoon around Broad and Washington. Then, the parties will ensue on Two Street.
Where: Various at Various
When: January 1, 2016 at 9:00 a.m.
How much: Free, if you're sitting along the street
