Visit All Year Round

South Philadelphia is busy and vibrant throughout the year. Like the rest of Philadelphia, tourism rates are higher in the summer and lower during fall and winter. However, the biggest event of the year for South Philadelphia is the Mummer's Parade, a local event held each New Year's Day. It is the oldest folk festival in the United States, and features extravagant costumes and great displays of local pride.
