It's History Day in Tacony

and it's a great day for a parade.

This year marks the 20th Annual Tacony History Day! On September 17th our neighborhood will continue its proud tradition with an array of string bands, drum and bugle corps, youth groups, classic and military vehicles making their way up Torresdale Avenue at 11:00 AM! The Parade route is expected to return to Princeton Avenue, where it will turn to Cottage Street, after the long-awaited completion of Phase 1 of the I-95 re-ramping project.

The 20th Annual Disston Festival, held immediately after the Parade at Disston Recreation Center, will feature the usual complement of kiddie rides, games, contests, live music and dancers plus expanded refreshment options. The big feature is always the indoor display of local memorabilia and Tacony history for a nostalgic trip through time.
