The Truth About Philadelphia

Michael Meyers
Community Activist, Northeast

Question #16 What is the most beautiful thing you've ever seen in Philadelphia?

Glenn: What is the most beautiful thing you've ever seen in Philadelphia?

Michael: I guess, uh, the most beautiful thing in -- things in Philadelphia are, umm, like the fireworks displays. I was actually at one a couple of years ago, it was on New Year's Eve surprisingly not on the Fourth of July. And it was the absolute most beautiful fireworks display I ever saw. And so that -- that was pretty neat. And I -- I mean, I think like, the Mummer's Parade -- Parade on New Year's Day, you know, the Mummer's Parade is just, umm, absolutely fabulous. It's something that's unique to Philadelphia. It's something that, you know, identifies Philadelphia, and I guess in a sense, makes you kind of connected with Philadelphia. It's something that's, you know, broadcast all over the country. And I'd say that's, uh, probably one of the most beautiful things in the City.
