Okay, so now that you’re ready to spectate the business out of the Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday, I’d like to point you to a group of people who will be doing it up right: the folks from our local Lululemon stores, who’ll be gathered at the intersection of Kelly Drive and Ferry Street in East Falls near the 17-and-22-mile mark. (That part of the course is out and back, remember.) They’re going to have a live DJ spinning tunes, cheer signs galore, noisemakers and other surprises they don’t want to spoil (boo).
The pièce de résistance? As many as 30 fully decked out, glittering, sparkling Mummers. “We don’t mess around,” says Gabriella Totokotsopoulos, assistant store manager at Lululemon King of Prussia.
Nearby In Riva restaurant will open for an early brunch and supply beverages and bathrooms (phew) for the Lulu cheering section. Anyone’s welcome to join—you can RSVP here—but you probably want to wear your Luon.
