Bring the Mummers parade back to South Philly

This petition had 2,218 supporters

The time has come for South Philly residents and business owners to bring back the new year's parade back to South Philly. The monetary investment made by south Philly business associations will be compensated by the amounts of patrons brought to the passyunk, broad Street  and the rest of the South Philly area. The city continues to cut back on monetary investment in the parade, and has now decided to dictate to members how to run it. The convention center event, while nice for the fancy brigades, takes away from the essence of the parade, and shuts out the families who have supported this parade for over a century.
