The Wench Brigade Association announced on Facebook that the Wenches will be marching in the traditional direction during the 2017 Mummers Parade.
As everyone knows the Wenches are going North on Broad st, but just to remind everyone that if your club is not lined up on Washington Ave and ready to move at 8am, the police and the city will not let you march north , your club will have to find another way to get up to your waiting position on 15th and Market
What’s the line up for the wenches this year?
For the People that Continue to say that the Parade Should go back to the Original Parade Route in South Philadelphia.Do you Really think the Mummers Association Really wanted to move the Parade out of South Philadelphia? This Move to Center City going in the Opposite Direction is to Preserve and Save the Parade for Future Generations. With Very Little Financial Support From the City for Police and Sanitation. And Continuing Pressure From the City to Shorten the Parade Route.The Mummers Association had to make this Move. Marching I’m the Mummers Parade. And being a Fan For Years. I Observed Empty Side Walks and Deserted Streets Marching in Most Sections in South Philadelphia. For the People who Complain why it’s not in South Philadelphia. Go to Washington Avenue New Years Day and Support the Mummers bY Watching the Parade live on the Street. Happy New year. And keep Strutting
Nice to dance for people on broad St that for cars on 11st
