Mummers Parade

Mummers Parade

Of all the flash and fanfare of Philadelphia’s Mummers Parade, the string bands—costumed bands playing banjo, saxophone, accordion and more—could be the crowd favorite. The centuries-old New Year’s Day procession departs from City Hall and continues south on Broad Street to Washington Avenue.
