A white supremacist group marched through the City of Philadelphia Saturday evening.

Police say none of the protesters were from Philadelphia.

The group, who go by the name “Patriot Front” are based in Texas and they traveled into the city.

Action News was the only crew on the scene as the group traveled down the Ben Franklin Parkway, across Market, Chestnut and Walnut Streets before marching to Penn’s Landing.

Hundreds of masked protesters from Patriot Front chanted, while carrying American flags and shields.

At Penn’s Landing, several onlookers began yelling at the protesters and banging on trucks as the group loaded into the vehicles and drove off.

Police say some of the angry onlookers scared off the white supremacists.

“They started engaging with citizens of Philadelphia, who were none too happy about what they were saying. These males felt threatened, and at one point somebody threw a smoke bomb to cover their retreat, and they literally ran away from the people of Philadelphia,” said Philadelphia Police Officer Michael Crum.

Police later questioned the entire group of protesters after pulling their trucks over for safety reasons along Delaware Avenue.

Police say no property was destroyed last night during this incident.

The march comes the evening before First Lady Jill Biden’s visit to Philadelphia for Independence Day.
