13. Mummers is the best parade (and day drinking) outside Mardi Gras
Seriously -- if you’ve never been to Mummers Day in Philly, you should reevaluate your life. For the non-Philadelphian, Mummers is an all-day parade that goes through the city, finishing on Two St, with drinks consumed liberally throughout.
Butterscotch Krimpets > Twinkies, Ho Hos, Ding Dongs, and Snowballs combined. Okay, combining those would be gross, but still, even separately, Tastykakes reign supreme.
