Mayfair-Holmesburg Thanksgiving Parade Welcomes Holiday Season
MOUNTED Shriners helped bring excitement to the parade.
PRIDE OF ERIN School of Irish Dancing was proud of this group from their classes.
NO Mayfair-Holmesburg Parade would march off unless it included music-makers from Greater Kensington String Band.
GEN. GEORGE WASHINGTON gave a preview of his crossing Delaware River from Penna. to Trenton to capture the Hessian garrison on Christmas Eve.
NO MATTER the cold winds blowing along Frankford Avenue, these families came prepared to watch and applaud marchers from Rhawn Street to Cottman Avenue.
TAKING their usual places in parade line were State Reps. John Taylor, Kevin Boyle and Mike Driscoll; State Sen. John Sabatina, Jr.; State Sen. Christine Tartaglione’s staff; Commissioner Barbara Deeley; and Councilman Bobby Henon. Photos by Bill Myers
