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.

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.

WE'RE SO negative. Philadelphians don't like this. We don't like that. We focus too much on all the bad that young people do these days and not on the positive. And now a whole lot of us are talking trash about a parade to celebrate the Villanova Wildcats' NCAA championship win. A parade! Who doesn't like a parade? People really need to lighten up. It's spring (finally) and this gray, grimy city needs something to celebrate. What could be more special than throwing a parade in honor of Villanova University's triumphant win?

I love a parade, the tramping of feet, I love every beat I hear of a drum. I love a parade, when I hear a band I just want to stand and cheer as they come. That rat-a-tat-tat! The flair of a horn! That rat-a-tat-tat! A bright uniform! THOSE LYRICS came from a song written by Ted Koehler in 1931 as part of the Cotton Club Show "Rhythmania. " Having not seen the show, I don't know what it was referring to, but it sure does fit us here in Philadelphia. We love a parade.

OCEAN CITY, N.J. - To say that Mark Soifer would go to the ends of the earth for Ocean City may be an understatement. Because in the 45 years that Soifer - who will retire at the end of the summer from his position as the resort's public relations director - has commuted from his home in Vineland to his office here, he could have circumnavigated the globe three times. Soifer, aside from creating and executing dozens of local events and activities over the years, has also written about 5,000 columns for the local newspaper, the Ocean City Sentinel, and thousands of news releases about everything from the annual Doo Dah Parade to the Mister Maturity Pageant.

Philadelphia is home to one of the oldest St. Patrick's Day parades in the nation and - according to listicles across the Web - one of the best. On a cool and drizzly Sunday morning, the Ben Franklin Parkway became a mosaic of green, with kilts and shamrocks. Bagpipes were the soundtrack to reunions as family and friends lined the Parkway. "There's a lot of anticipated excitement," said Maddy Williams, 19, who brought two friends with her. The Philadelphia Emerald Society marched down the Parkway, along with Irish dance troupes and bands playing Irish folk songs, many in traditional garb.

Gloucester City is proud to be blue-collar, but when March comes, this river town of 11,000 turns bright green. It's the emerald green of plastic shamrocks shimmering on rowhouse doors. It's the Kelly green of little molded leprechauns dancing on front lawns. It's the moss green of banners reading "Happy St. Patrick's Day" and "Erin go bragh ," and of those iron-on patches for sale at a local gift shop that read "Gloucester City: Bleeding Green Since 1623. " But it wasn't green enough for the new pastor at St. Mary's Catholic Church.
