PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The weather didn't dampen the spirits of people celebrating Memorial Day at Penn's Landing Sunday.

In fact, it was business as usual for the Tall Ships festival, where hundreds filtered in and out throughout the day.

"These people are here and they are celebrating hard," said Shawn Murray, who was working the gate at the Delaware River waterfront.

Even with a little rain, that wouldn't hold back 8-year-old Chase Kerr: "Why would you not go? If you already have the tickets and this is a one-time event."

Nebraska teen Bree Kniss celebrated her birthday with her twin brother at the festival.

"We wanted to spend it hanging out in Philadelphia," she said. "It's pretty cool."

For some, like Jessica Krow, the rain was inspiration.

"We just went for a run in this," said Krow. "It was nice."

Others chose to dance in the rain — or hula hoop.

"I'm here to entertain the crowds," said Rebel Rabbitt while swinging her hips.
