Mayfair/Holmesburg Thanksgiving Parade set for Sunday [slideshow]

Sunday marks the annual Mayfair-Holmesburg Thanksgiving Parade, and unless it rains, Grand Marshall Ed Kelly will lead the “Bringing Music to Mayfair” parade down Frankford Avenue.

The Mayfair Civic Association has a guide to everything you need to know for parade day, including tips for businesses that want to get involved.

Festivities begin at noon on Frankford Avenue at Rhawn Street, and will end at 3 p.m. at Knorr Street. In between, performers will stop at Ryan Avenue and one other location farther South to entertain the crowd.

Aside from the usual floats, games and music, community members this year had the opportunity to make their own floats. Those — and the new baby contest — will be judged, and ribbons awarded.

If you’re going, you can send your photos to info AT Below, check out slideshows from last year’s parade.
