Event Information

From 11am to noon at 5th and Chestnut, join other Philadelphians in breaking the world record for the most high fives at an event.  Be sure to touch the hand of Marine Colonel John Folsam of Nebraska, founder of the Wounded Warriors Project, as judges from the Guinness Book of World Records determine if the goal of over 6,000 high fives will be achieved.  The parade also features an array of patriotic and multicultural marchers, music, dancers, and floats including historical figures Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Betsy Ross and many other entertaining spectacles.
