The Parade

Tomorrow at noon:

Officially, Philadelphia public and parochial schools will be open. But if past parades are predictive, many pupils will contract a serious case of “Phillies Fever,” which is treated by fresh air and loud cheering.

In 1980, some teachers even conducted impromptu field trips with their students, citing the importance of studying history.

Pictures from the last one.
