"I spent 10 dollars to get a commuter pass to get home and I don't think I will be able to do that," said Greg Roach. "[It's] unfortunate."

And while several parade-goers were annoyed by the wait, most were understanding, to a degree.

"Getting back is a little hectic, but hey it's Philly," said Heather Dulaney of Drexel Hill. "We're having fun, enjoying it."
