Weekend Happenings: Doggie Dash/Splash, Celebrate America Parade
On the weekend when we once yelled, "Show Us Your Shoes," we'll now cheer for our country and America's heroes. Please join us this Saturday at 5p at the Celebrate America Parade, sponsored by Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on the Atlantic City Boardwalk between Metropolitan and Arkansas Avenue.
The parade is an all-star celebration of America, featuring marching bands, string bands, floats, gigantic parade balloons and American military troops. Suzette Charles, Miss America 1984, will serve as the Grand Marshal. She'll be joined by Philly sports heroes like the Phils Larry Bowa, Eagles great Bill Bergey and legendary Flyer Dave "The Hammer" Schultz.
Look for our Townsquare Media personalities and listen to our live broadcast from the boardwalk deck at Hard Rock on WPG Talk Radio 95.5 during the parade.
