Pulaski Day Parade to take over Benjaminm Franklin Parkway

    Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia won’t quite look the same today, as marchers will walk down the busy street as part of the Pulaski Day Parade.

    The parade begins at 12:30 p.m. from 20th and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The parade will make its way down the Parkway to 16th Street, u-turn on 16th then march west on the Parkway around Logan Circle before ending at 22nd Street.

    The event will be carried live on WPVI-TV from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

    Today’s parade marks the end of a busy few days of observance and events for General Pulaski.

    General Pulaski arrived in Philadelphia in 1777 from Poland where he came to the aid of General Washington’s forces.
