Guests can look forward to a visit from SWOOP, the beloved Eagles mascot, as well as a few friends from the Philadelphia Zoo! Other special guests include three winners of Miss American Teenager 2014 – Mary Grace Wilson (Teenager), Maria Kapustina (Junior), and Stephanie Brilliant (Preteen) – alongside Miss Metropolitan NYC Julia Rae Schlucter.
