Day 1

The Philadelphia tradition of Mummery has been in existence since 1901. The Mummers Day Parade is the culmination of a year's worth of community events, fundraising initiatives, and dedication to perpetuate the tradition of Mummery. Elaborate performances with costumes, music, and dance are the attractions that allow the Fancy Brigade Association to raise funds for charitable organizations in the region.

The Mummers are as much a part of New Year's in Philadelphia as confetti celebrations, countdowns and resolutions. Like clockwork on January 1, Mummers parade through the city streets in sequins, beads and colorful plumage, strutting and playing the day away. There are the Comics, clowns and the like; the Fancies, pulling floats; and the String Bands, who make their own musical fanfare. And then there are the Fancy Brigades, who put their own spin on a time-honored Mummers tradition by taking their revelry inside the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The most theatrical of the bunch, the 12 Fancy Brigade clubs get into character with lavish costumes, elaborate floats and props, then take center stage to perform Broadway-quality choreographed skits.

You're in for a spectacular show with reserved seats to enjoy the Fancy Brigades during their Pennsylvania Convention Center performance. Lunch is included at the City Tavern Restaurant before departing for home.
