The Easter celebrations were in full swing in the City of Brotherly Love on Sunday! It was the 88th year for the Easter Promenade, and it is one of the cities oldest and largest Easter traditions. Families got dressed up in their Sunday best to come out and see the bright colors, live music, and of course, appearances by Mr. and Mrs. Peter Cottontail and photos with the Easter Bunny.
Charitable Minded Philly Car Guy, Gary Barbera, along with Mayor Kenney, Fox 29’s Alex Holly and Miss Bucks County 2019, Miss Liberty Bell 2019, Miss Mountain 2019 and of course the Barbera Bear, entertained South Street from 5th and South to 2nd and Lombard. Henri David, the master of ceremonies, led the thousands of people who turned out for the fun! The Barbera Family is coming up on its third decade of participation. There were prizes and best dressed contests and of course, pictures with the Bar-BEAR-a Bunny.
