The Mummers are strutting their stuff even in these bitter cold Philadelphia temperatures today .  They work all year to march down the streets of Philly and bring joy to those who watch . Whether you are watching on TV at home or braving the streets . It is a New Years tradition in Philadelphia to be dancing in the streets with the Mummers

 

Because of the extreme cold this year the parade was almost canceled . The temperates today are 17 degrees at 1pm with a wind chill of 5 degrees  but the show must go on .

 

Can you imagine the excitement of watching this in person . The pressure of  the holiday shopping is over and a New Year is starting . It is time to celebrate . Philadelphia does it in a grand style . Philadelphia is dancing in the streets

 

The Mummers Parade is held each New Year's Day in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,  It is believed to be the oldest folk festival in the United States. Local clubs (usually called "New Years Associations") compete in one of four categories (comics, fancies, string bands, and fancy brigades).  .The streets are closed  in South Philly and everyone who attends enjoys the parade. Every year it is better and better 

 

 

Mummers in Philadelphia are costumed citizens celebrating the New Year with family and friends.  They belong to clubs in one of five Divisions: The Comic, The Fancy, the Wench Brigade, the String Band and the Fancy Brigade Divisions.  In Philadelphia this has developed into the grandest of Mummers traditions, the annual Mummers Parade.  Ten thousand participants and hundreds of thousands of parade viewers take to the streets and sidewalks or view on television on New Year’s Day.

It a Philadelphia tradition and a glorious site to see- dancing in the streets

 

 

 

Golden Slippers are the iconic image of Mummery.  The unofficial theme song of the Mummers is “Oh Dem Golden Slippers,” composed by James Bland in 1879. What a way to strut your stuff  ..  and bring in the New Year Watching this wonderful Parade of dedicated participants .

 

 

Here is a short video of one of the String Bands from last year .  I hope you take the time to watch and enjoy  a piece of Philadelphia New Year tradition .

 

Wishing Everyone a Happy & Healthy New Year
