A hero’s welcome will be given to Philadelphia’s own Taney Dragons, whom many in Philadelphia are calling
the “Taney 12” for their incredible run at the Little League World Series. The parade starts at 2 p.m. on 20th and Market streets and will make its way down Broad street ending at Pattison street and FDR Park on Broad.
The Taney Dragons, as you may recall, clinched a spot in the Little League World Series in Williamsport this month not only representing Philadelphia and Pennsylvania but the whole Mid-Atlantic region of the United States.
The parade starting at 2oth and Market Streets will make its way down to the Kimmel Center 2:30 p.m. where Taney will receive a performance by the Philadelphia POPS! Heading further south, the Taney 12 will also be greeted by the Mummers 3:30 p.m. at Broad Street and Washington Avenue, coming to and end at FDR Park for a huge pep rally 4 p.m. at Broad and Pattison streets.
Later tonight the Philles will honor the Dragons for their tremendous athletic achivments at Citizens Bank Park just before the Nationals game and allowing them to all simotaneously throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
