Patriotic flurries of straggler confetti drifted from the high altitudes at the Wells Fargo Center throughout the morning Friday, adding to the piles of confetti blanketing the arena floor long after thousands of exuberant Democratic National Convention attendees had left the city. While the party celebrated into the night, Wells Fargo workers using "spikes on a stick" began popping the thousands of balloons released after Hillary Clinton's speech accepting her party's presidential nomination.

Crowds roared, church bells rang, and streams of paper rained down on Broadway as the New York Yankees celebrated their 27th championship in a way only this city can, with a parade up the Canyon of Heroes. The players, joined by a few celebrity fans and Yankees of the past, drank it all in yesterday as they rode on floats and double-decker buses through Manhattan's financial district. It has been years since the city used actual ticker-tape to celebrate its World Series wins, but the experience was still authentic to the many thousands who crammed the sidewalks along the three-quarter-mile parade route near Wall Street.

It was tough to tell whether you were at a theme park or a pop concert Thursday at the Wells Fargo Center, where Coldplay was playing the first of back-to-back nights. The Chris Martin-led British quartet was up on stage — and in the crowd — playing music focused on its candy-colored fifth album, Mylo Xyloto (2011), mixed with ingratiating hits from throughout its dozen-year career. But the show was as much about the exploding bursts of color filling up the room as it was about the soaring melodic soft-rock that was being brought to life by pianist-guitarist-singer Martin and his bandmates, Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, and Will Champion.

Inside the operations bunker of the First Union Center, Joel Ralph moves among the secret brotherhood of immaculate dark suits, the guys with the high-tech earphones and X-ray eyes. "We're on lockdown," Ralph says. It's 11:20 p.m. Thursday. Balloons and confetti swirl like a midwinter blizzard. The nomination has been accepted. Chaka Khan sings, the cardinal blesses, and Ralph watches it all on the TV monitor, anticipating the moment when he'll emerge with his crew and bring down the set of the Republican National Convention.

More than a million screaming fans - or enough to fill Yankee Stadium 55 times, by the mayor's generous estimate - crammed the narrow streets of lower Manhattan yesterday to salute the city's new heroes, the World Series champion New York Yankees. The fans, standing 40 deep in some spots, roared as the Yankees passed by, their cheers of "Let's go Yankees!" resounding off the brick and glass skyscrapers in the city's "Canyon of Heroes," which has seen the likes of Charles Lindbergh, several astronauts, Nelson Mandela, the Miracle Mets of '69 - and, yesterday, those come-from-behind World Series winners.

It's not stupid. The performers give it their all (in at least two cases, their altogether, too). It doesn't get too cutesy like so many British comedies. And heaven knows, the subject is worthy of satire. All good things. So I'm not really sure why the improvised British mockumentary Confetti hardly ever made me laugh. This is a case where it really could be me; throughout the screening, my brain was telling me that someone else may quite legitimately bust a gut at this thing.

EVERY YEAR, police and prosecution bigwigs exhort citizens to celebrate the New Year with fireworks, feasts and confetti - instead of celebratory gunfire. And every year, plenty of knuckleheads ignore that plea. This year, police arrested nine people for allegedly participating in eight celebratory-gunfire incidents. They arrested 10 more people on gun violations. One suspect also was charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly pointed his gun at officers. And police arrested Kevin Ward, 57, of West Philly, after they followed the thunder of gunfire to his home, and he told them: "I was shooting the tree.

With the last exam handed in, with prom dresses packed away, and the final bell of the year poised to ring, more than 2,400 students, teachers, and even the school cop at Spring-Ford Senior High erupted Friday afternoon in the ultimate end-of-school fireworks. Actually, make that "Firework. " In less than four manic minutes preceded by eight months of preparation, the entire student body joyously lip-synched Katy Perry's 2010 hit for a fast-moving Steadicam as it passed through the crowded halls amid cascades of smoke and confetti.

ELI MANNING hoisted the Lombardi Trophy from a glittering blue-and-white float, and Mayor Michael Bloomberg joked that New York City should now be nicknamed the "Big Blue Apple," as thousands of fans crowded lower Manhattan yesterday to celebrate the New York Giants' Super Bowl victory amid tons of confetti. The parade set off from the southern tip of Manhattan and rolled slowly north to City Hall, past fans dressed head to toe in red, blue and white Giants gear, with confetti wafting slowly from the high-rises lining Broadway.

Texas troubadour Robert Earl Keen has always had the knack for writing witty, sharply observed story-songs that showcase literary flair but don't take themselves too seriously. Starting with No Kinda Dancer in 1984 and up to the fine new Ready for Confetti , the 55-year-old Americana artist has built a following of admirers who shout along to his party songs and might even notice that the good times always come with a cost. Along with his holiday classic, "Merry Christmas From the Family," Keen is probably best known for his outlaw saga "The Road Goes on Forever.

When the clouds parted early yesterday, praise resounded from the white-clad choir at Bright Hope Baptist Church in North Philadelphia. Henri David reigned over a promenade of tots in frills and polka dots at Headhouse Square. Children sprinkled glitter on confetti-filled eggs at a newly opened art gallery. Termini's Bakery in South Philadelphia sold every last bunny-shaped pound cake. And as night drew near, ghouls began to gather on South Street for the third annual Philly Zombie Crawl.
