Finally, a Phil Collins Parade!
As the headline in The Brooklyn Paper reads, “They could feel it coming in the air that night.” Indeed, on Feb. 15, a Phil Collins parade that took place in Brooklyn.
About 300 fans showed up to show their appreciation for the British pop legend. Various attendees held signs with Collins’ lyrics, and they even affixed a six-foot-tall paper-mache bust of Collins’ head to the top of a silver Nissan.
Organizer Heather Kramer set up the tribute “as an antidote to Valentine’s Day,” and out of pure Collins love. “This went better than I imagined,” she told the paper. “Everyone had so much fun."
Scott Riehs, a Collins impersonator, was standing on a car and taking requests when the police told him to get down. But Riehs said, “I’ve been waiting for this all my life.”
