Philadelphia 2018 Thanksgiving Day Parade

Philadelphia 2018 Thanksgiving Day Parade


The Woodside One Wheelers performance team performed in the 1.4-mile 6ABC Dunkin’ Donuts 2018 Thanksgiving Day Parade… the oldest Thanksgiving parade in the country and a true Philadelphia tradition. The city streets made way for massive floats and giant balloons, plus local performers from choirs, dance groups, marching bands and more. Santa himself arrived in grand fashion, ushering Philadelphia into the festive holiday season.

We are extremely proud of each one of them and hope this experience, a first for many, was one filled with memories they will cherish for years to come- made possible by numerous donors and contributors! Congratulations on reaching a significant plato as they WOWed the enormous Philly crowds estimated at over 1 million spectators and was Nationally Televised and streamed LIVE online!

Pennsylvania’s largest city, is notable for its rich history, on display at the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were signed) and other American Revolutionary sites. At 99 years old, the annual Thanksgiving Day parade promised another visual and celebratory feast and was the perfect early holiday treat to partake in with family or friends.

WOW makes baseball history throwing out the first pitch at a Sea Dogs game on a 3 wheel unicycle!

WOW makes baseball history throwing out the first pitch at a Sea Dogs game on a 3 wheel unicycle!

At 1:00 PM on April 7, 2013 Marie Ring pedaled her 3 wheel unicycle out in front of the pitcher’s mound at Hadlock Field in Portland and made baseball history as she delivered the ceremonial ‘first pitch’ from her perch. It is believed that this is the first time a first pitch has ever been delivered in this manner- certainly at Hadlock!

It was a quiet weekend for Marie who won an exhibition tennis match on Friday, collected four medals as she led Mt. Ararat High School to 3rd place finish at the Science Olympiad on Saturday and made baseball history on Sunday. Marie also had her picture taken with former New York Yankees manager Stump Merrill. Stump was scouting for the Yankees (the Sea Dogs were playing Trenton, which is the Yankees AA team) Stump also has 2 grand-daughters- Lainie and Ella, who rode with the Woodside One Wheelers.

The rest of the WOW team also performed on this cold and blustery day. The opened with a dazzling performance on the pavilion outside the park before the game and then inside the park showing a variety of their skills including the bunny hop, three-wheelers, ultimate wheelers (they have no seats), giraffes and kangaroo-style pedals. The crowd was amazed by their juggling skills- inviting a few to give it a try.

It was another fantastic performance by these amazing athletes!
