2013 4th of July Parade

Found out my son's marching band will be participating in the Philadelphia 4th of July parade, and am looking for some advice on best locations for viewing the parade. Coming from out of state, never been to the area.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Last year they added more streets to the parade route to make it two blocks longer. If they add more this year, that will be a good place to watch the parade becasue people will know the old parade route

Also check if they have an area set aside for participants family. They did a few years ago, each person got 1 or 2 tickets.

The route hasn't been announced yet, so no way to know best spots for sure.
