EPS Goes Strutting With the Durning String Band at the 2012 Mummers Parade

EPS Cars creations by Rick Willens for the Durning String Band

 

The 2012 Philadelphia Mummers Parade presented by SugarHouse Casino went off without a hitch on New Year’s Day. A full day of fun, music, dancing and celebrations. The 17 String Bands were top notch and here is the story behind our favorite performance “The Durning String Band.”
EPS, expanded polystyrene, isn’t just foam insulation. It is an innovative building, packaging, construction, flotation, multi-purpose material. But did you know that it went strutting along with The Durning String Band in the 2012 Philadelphia Mummers parade?
