Over the years, numerous big names such as beauty pageant winners and casts of musicals have performed at this event. The 1.4 miles (2.25 kilometers) long parade kicks off from 19th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, and makes its way through the city before ending in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
