Then on New Year’s Day 2015, the Fancy Brigades put their own spin on the time-honored Mummers tradition by taking their revelry inside the Pennsylvania Convention Center for two shows. The 11 Fancy brigade clubs get into character with lavish costumes, elaborate floats and props, then take center stage to perform Broadway-quality choreographed acts.
