It’s getting really real as Philly prepares for the Pope! The United States Secret Service released a list of items prohibited from the Ben Franklin Parkway during the events being held for the pope’s visit to Philadelphia, including the papal Mass on Sunday, September 27th.
The same list applies for the pope’s speech at Independence Mall on Saturday, September 26th.
The items are:
-Animals other than service/guide animals
-Backpacks and bags exceeding the size restrictions (18″ x 13″ x 7″)
-Hard Coolers (Soft-sided thermal coolers ARE allowed)
-Drones and other unmanned aircraft systems
-Glass, thermal or metal containers
-Signs exceeding the size restrictions (5′ x 3′ x 1/4″) made of any material except cardboard, poster board or cloth
-Supports for signs and placards
-Weapons of any kind
-Any other items determined to be a potential safety hazard
Don’t get caught with these item people! Looks like the only thing you can bring is yourself! lol I’m just saying!
