The city is currently full of holiday spirit, but one of the biggest and best parties of the year is right around the corner.
Philadelphia is gearing up to ring in 2014 with spectacular SugarHouse New Year’s Eve Fireworks on the Delaware River Waterfront, featuring two shows at 6 p.m. and midnight. But it doesn’t stop there, Philadelphia.
New Year’s Day brings the 114th annual Mummer’s Parade, a can’t-miss Philadelphia tradition.
