Philly’s Casino Continues New Year’s Eve Tradition of Fireworks and Mummers Parade; Sponsors Back-to-Back New Year’s Celebrations for Fifth Consecutive Year


PHILADELPHIA — December 1, 2015 — SugarHouse Casino continues its tradition as host of Philadelphia’s biggest New Year’s bash, presenting two of the region’s most well-recognized celebrations on back-to-back days.
