Delco Eagles Pep Parade did not disappoint, and WJBR was there!

I’ve lived in the Media PA area for over 30 years, and this town has always had great parades!

State Street, where normally the Septa 101 Trolly shares the street with vehicles, is the perfect street for a parade!

Throughout the year Media borough hosts parades on various holidays and in the summer the street shuts down for Dining Under The Stars, where State Street becomes an out door dining patio!

State Street is also great when there are not any events at all.  Its a great old fashioned Main Street where you can stroll up and down the sidewalks, and the dining and adult beverage options are endless!

The street is also lined with many gift shops if you are looking for something unique to give!

I’d like to invite listeners in and around Wilmington to take the short drive here and enjoy the town.

Today Media and all of Delco came out by the thousands to celebrate our Philadelphia Eagles!  The count down to Super Bowl 57 is on!

The Delco Eagles Pep Parade kicked off at 3pm and was lead by The Eagles Pep Band.   They performed the only song anyone wants to her at an Eagles Pep Rally!   They probably lost count how many times they played “Fly Eagles Fly”!

Kane Kalas, the son of the late legendary Philadelphia broadcaster  (and Media resident) Harry Kalas, was the pep rally’s host.  He too sang “Fly Eagles Fly” and lead the crowd in the “E A G L E S EAGLES” chant.

As you see in the photos below, all the makings of a parade in “Everybody’s Hometown” were there.  Classic cars, fire trucks, a few  Mummers and many civic minded businesses from the region.

Go Birds!
