Not without protest Moments before the bikes, floats and groups should go by Philadelphia Police officers make an arrest as an unidentifiable masked person attempted to pit a black and blue colored American flag. While the single protestor emerged from the crowd the incident seems unrelated but rather aimed at the Police.

The man, who goes by the name of Pastor Aden Rusfeldt and the group of mostly family members packed up shortly after 2pm to make it to an other large event, the Odunde festival, elsewhere in the city.
