2017 Mummers Parade Order of March and Themes
Beautiful parade again this year, my friends! I met several Frogs and loved those friendly guys. I even interviewed them for my You tube vlog. Can I have a little history about them so I can have it for my video? Are they considered clowns, wenches, or comics? How long have they been marching? Thanks!
That toilet thing was the worst thing ever at the parade! Shouldn’t have been in the parade. It really “stunk.”
I. missed the string bands on live stream on Phl 17.. is there a way I can see video of them?
Loved Ferko colorful and so musicly amazing!
This years parade is disgusting! Leave politics out of it! The toilet display is worthless! Go back to the old ways!
mummers need to stop the mummers politics and grow the parade for the good of mummery, It’s dying … They need to take parade in new direction and go back to their roots bring back the mother clubs and merge the division to make it one big parade like In The past with no gaps or lack of participation. THe parade needs to go back to South Philly and the worst things that ever hurt the parade was the convention center…. big clubs get bigger small clubs die so sad mummers hierarchy care so little for the future of their craft. Having marched in 5 decades it is sad to see the state of the parade.
I was a mummer for 35 years and the political part has been in it since then. I no longer march (due to work and injury) but my hearts still in it. I agree 100%. It’s a dying tradition that will eventually led to all wench, like when the very 1st parade ever took place.
Best of luck to all , heve a fun day .
The Mummers Parade is getting Smaller. Just 16 Stringbands. One Fancy Club. Golden Sunrise. Only 10 Fancy Brigades. And Three Comic Clubs. There was a Time that there were 27 Stringbands Four Fancy Clubs. Hong Island. Charles Klein, Oregon, Golden Sunrise. And the Comics Had the Liberty Clowns, Hammond, Plural. Landi,Murray, Good times Remain in the Comics. The WENCH Brigades have a Big Participation
I look forward to watching every year on the Internet from Maryland. Great job and good luck to all the string bands.
Good Luck to all mummers have a good time be safe and be respectful to all groups
