Philadelphia Mummers Parade

Events in

January 1, 2019

It may seem like a peculiar tradition to most: Take it easy on New Year’s Eve, so you’re ready to party on January 1. That’s exactly what happens in Philadelphia, which marks each revolution around the sun with the fanciful, fantastical, unbelievable Mummers Parade.

Picture it: 10,000 men and women painting their faces and donning bedazzled costumes to march through the city — dancing and performing all the way. Men in dresses and makeup. Women with mustaches and beards. Boas, sequins, feathers, confetti. And it’s not even Pride.
