2018 Mummers Parade Guide

I put together some pages with the current available information about the 2018 Mummers Parade. The guide is meant to give you an early look at the 2018 Mummers Parade. I’m updating this page frequently with new information as we get closer to New Years Day.

Please share this guide with all mummers fans. Also, be sure to connect with MrMummer on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Also, visit MrMummer.com on New Years Day. We will be covering the entire parade and have photos, videos and the results from all 5 divisions.

Please send me an email at: mrmummer1@gmail.com  if you notice any errors that you want me to correct or would like me to clarify something on the pages. I hope you enjoy the guide.
