Marching bands, horse soldiers, Army tanks and costumed dancers highlighted yesterday's Pulaski Day parade in honor of Revolutionary War hero Gen. Casimir Pulaski.

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.

Even before the Cavaliers' chartered jet departed San Francisco Monday, the morning after that franchise's first NBA title, a massive parade was planned for downtown Cleveland, mock-ups of their championship rings were all over the internet, and their mandatory White House visit was being hastily arranged. Those three rewards - the procession, the precious stone, and the president's personal praise - have become the official booty of champions, the trifecta of triumph, the sine qua non of sports.

At Penn's Landing, two U.S. Coast Guard vessels plied the Delaware River behind the stage, bolstering an army of Philadelphia Police ringing the crowded festival site.

A former congressman, a parade of government staffers, and even a hotel doorman cycled through the witness stand Friday as the defense case began in the federal corruption trial of U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah (D., Pa.) and four codefendants. Lawyers for the accused hoped each could put a little polish back on their clients' reputations after three weeks of tarnishing government testimony. But prosecutors showed little patience for the pursuit. Asked if she had an opinion of Fattah's character, Elizabeth King, Fattah's former legislative director, eagerly replied: "I absolutely do. "He is a truthful person who does good things for the right reasons," she said.

On the same weekend that a certain men's basketball team at a certain Main Line college flew to Houston to compete in a certain college basketball tournament, 16 boys boarded a school bus in North Philadelphia and settled in for a seven-hour ride across the state. By weekend's end, everyone in Philadelphia knew what had happened in Houston. Only a few - outside of those packing a high school gymnasium in Erie - knew that the boys' basketball team at St. Martin de Porres Catholic School was on its way home with a trophy, too. For the first time in its history, the little school in the heart of North Philadelphia, whose team practices in its auditorium because it has no gym, had won the Catholic Youth League's state basketball championship.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Hundreds of basset hounds waddled down the boardwalk here Saturday as a thousand or so spectators gathered to watch the Doo Dah Parade, a springtime tradition. Some of the hounds were stuffed into pink tutus, while others wore polka dots, stripes, silvery capes, and assorted straw hats. Still others were au naturel , looking adorable enough with their pensive eyes and dangling ears on a warm, sunny day that had lured visitors to the Shore way ahead of the season.

We needed that parade. Maybe more than the Wildcats did. Sure, Villanova University is six miles beyond City Avenue in Radnor Township, but the whole region's fans desperately needed a moment of bliss to put Philadelphia's recent sports futility out of mind. Just a couple of hours in Center City to claim the NCAA champions as our own and latch onto a college squad that has almost as many NBA-ready prospects as the 76ers. "We should be honored," Pete Soens said Friday as he waited for the parade to roar into Penn Square.
