The man who goes by ABBA arrives at the Furnace Party. He is the apparent author of the mysterious letter that captivated the city for weeks.

Yes, they did attend.

Saturday's mysterious Furnace Party in Brewerytown drew hundreds and hundreds of people to a vacant lot at 27th and Girard to parade in costumes, drink beer, dance in the sun, revel in the oddness. And meet the man that brought them all together.

PhillyVoice reporter Brian Hickey and photographer Thom Carroll were on the scene to document the gathering. (Plus, we wrapped a few social media posts from the masses.)
