Marching bands, horse soldiers, Army tanks and costumed dancers highlighted yesterday's Pulaski Day parade in honor of Revolutionary War hero Gen. Casimir Pulaski. Tourists who were locked out of the Liberty Bell pavilion and Independence Hall because of the U.S. budget impasse joined thousands of other parade watchers for the colorful spectacle. The parade marked the 10th anniversary of Solidarity and was dedicated to Polish presidential candidate Lech Walesa.

Bristol Borough's Christmas parade hit the streets Saturday for the first time since 1988. The tradition had been stalled after merchants complained that the parade cut into time that holiday shoppers could spend in their stores and disagreements broke out about who would portray Santa. This year the parade was moved to Farragut Avenue and Pond Street instead of the business district on Mill Street. And spectators lined its route.

The committee and Rouse worked out an arrangement for some disabled veterans to ride in vehicles behind the war floats in the second, or "Preamble," section of the parade, said We the People spokesman Sam Rogers.

ORLANDO - On the surface, the only things the 76ers got out of winning the Orlando Pro Summer League were celebratory T-shirts and baseball caps. Oh, and they also stood at the Amway Center practice gym's center court for a team photo. There won't be any banners being hung at the Wells Fargo Center or parades on Broad Street for beating the Grizzlies, 91-75, in Friday's championship game. Yet, it was something the Sixers can build upon, especially after a 19-63 season. "Any positivity for the Sixers is great," said point guard Michael Carter-Williams, who was on hand to support the team's summer-league squad.

ETHAN MARTIN'S floppy blond locks haven't grown back in the last 10 weeks. At the end of spring training, the Phillies righthander, along with catching prospect Tommy Joseph, shaved his head in support of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation's "Cut for a Cure" campaign. Although his hair has been slow to return, Martin's right arm has come a long way back in the 2 1/2 months since he was last with the Phillies in Clearwater, Fla. Martin made his first appearance of the 2014 season on Tuesday night, posting two shutout innings against the Washington Nationals, with one walk and one strikeout.

FOR THE SECOND year in a row, the Port Richmond Memorial Day Parade has been canceled due to a lack of funding and volunteers, according to a parade volunteer. "Everyone wants to watch the parade but no one understands how much work it takes," said Patty-Pat Kozlowski, former president and current executive director of Port Richmond on Patrol and Civic Association (PROPAC). The organization has helped put on the parade in prior years. Kozlowski said she hopes the 50-year-old hallmark will return next year.

IT WAS an unusual funeral procession. A coffin bearing the earthly remains of Charlotte Warner Daily was taken through the streets of West Cape May, N.J., last Wednesday on a float festooned with symbols of the things that made her life worthwhile. There were two American flags symbolizing her patriotism, a cross for her religion, a 4-H sign representing the youth organization she sponsored and a carpet of sod reminiscent of her passion for gardening. There was also a Christmas tree as a symbol of the parade she organized and ran at Christmastime in West Cape May every year for 49 years.

In 1964, the float built by Charlotte Warner Daily's 4-H Club won a $100 prize in the Sea Isle City, N.J., Christmas parade. She wanted to enter it in a similar parade in Cape May, but the event was rained out. "So she went to the mayor of West Cape May and asked if she could have a parade in West Cape May, where we lived," daughter Jeanette Urquhart   said. "He said, 'Yeah, as long as you don't use the taxpayers' money.' " And so a decades-old tradition - the West Cape May Community Christmas Parade - was born.

With temperatures in the low 50s and winds at a brisk 14 m.p.h., it wasn't exactly prime beach weather. But families enthusiastically turned out Sunday afternoon on the boardwalk in Ocean City, N.J., for the annual Easter Fashion Promenade. There was tradition to uphold, after all - and prizes to win. Charlene Oldfield-Porreca, 60, a lifelong Ocean City resident, suggested the event wasn't quite what it used to be. Then again, the 1970s were a special time. That's when she modeled what she described on Sunday as her favorite Easter outfit: a purple velvet pantsuit with go-go boots.

PHILADELPHIA Since 1771, Philadelphians have marked St. Patrick's Day with a parade. On Sunday, the 2014 celebration will march up the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The theme of this year's celebration is "St. Patrick, bless the contributions of Irish Americans to our nation," and the grand marshal will be former Eagles general manager Jim Murray, a cofounder of the first Ronald McDonald House for ill children, which opened in 1974 in Philadelphia. Before the parade, a Mass will be said 9 a.m. at St. Patrick's Church, 20th and Locust Streets.

Anyone who's been to Philadelphia's Mummer's Parade would feel at home watching the Mardi Gras parades in Binche, a French-speaking town of 10,000 in southern Belgium. The Two Street crowd would recognize the men, teens, and children in colorful costumes; the ostrich plumes sprouting from heads; the brass, woodwind, and drum bands playing a nonstop stream of traditional, upbeat tunes that compel shuffles, shimmies, and struts. They'd recognize the lively crowd, fueled by high spirits and beer, lining the parade route, and, most Mummerly of all, the century-plus history that links today's paraders with generations past.

OMG! THEY didn't ! In yesterday's 114th edition of the New Year's/Mummers Parade, Uptown String Band used the theme "The Pillage People," which showed ferocious Vikings in horned helmets, swords and shields. The message was unmistakable: Norsemen were, basically, war criminals. What a despicable insult to Nordic peoples. What a crushing blow to their ethnic pride. Just poking a little fun at those who scour the parade for any unintended or (more likely) imagined insult.
