Mummers Parade on New Year's Day

The wacky and colorful Mummers Parade on New Year’s Day distinguishes Philadelphia’s New Year celebration from all others. During the day-long celebration, 15,000 elaborately costumed clowns, musicians and dancers strut up Broad Street, leaving a trail of glitter, feathers and fun. (Tip: Because each division starts at a different intersection, the only non-ticketed place to watch all of them is on Broad Street and Washington Avenue.)
