Mummers Parade background:

The parade has been taking place for well over 100 years now, making it what is believed to be the oldest parade of it's kind anywhere in the United States. The origins of the parade can be traced back to the old mummers plays of medieval Great Britain, a tradition that was brought across the Atlantic with the early settlers, while there also elements of Carnival in the costumes and music that owe a great deal to the similar events in the Caribbean.

Television coverage if the parade has been around for a while but it is only with the addition of the live online webcast that the parade has truly reached aglobal audience, and is now one of the most well known and eagerly anticipated new year's day parades in the world.

The lineup for the parade consists of 4 main sections; String Bands, The Fancy Brigade, Wench Brigade and Comics, progressing in strict order along the parade route. The timing of the participants is crucial as it allows friends and family to line the route at the correct times to make sure they don't miss their favourites.

The parade route has varied over the years, although the 2018 version is the same as last year, starting on Market Street and passing the main judging area outside the City Hall before ending at Broad Street and Washington Avenue. There are grandstands set up along the route to allow the best views, although these are ticketed so you need to plan in advance if you are planning to utilise them.

Elsewhere along the route there are plentiful viewing spots but with an attendance measured in the tend of thousands it is always advisable to make sure you arrive in plenty of time to secure an optimum viewing spot.
