Mummers Mardi Gras will no longer be held in Manyunk. On the Mummers Mardi Gras Facebook page, the event coordinators wrote a post stating:
Our team would like to thank Manayunk.com and all of the businesses who welcomed our Mummers tradition to Main Street over the past four years. We will be moving Mummers Mardi Gras to a new location in 2019 and look forward to continuing the celebration of mummery with the Philadelphia String Band Assn.
With any change, we understand the disappointment for some but look forward to continued memories for years to come.
The organizers are planning to hold the 2019 parade in another neighborhood, but the parade organizers declined to reveal any further details.
