Philadelphia Mummers Fancy Brigade

The Mummers Fancy Brigade Finale - The fanciest New Year's Day celebration!

Category: Play  
 

The Mummers are as much a part of New Year's in Philadelphia as confetti celebrations, countdowns and resolutions. Like clockwork on January 1st, Mummers parade through the city streets in sequins, beads and colorful plumage, strutting and playing the day away.

There are the comics, clowns and the like; the Fancies, pulling floats; and the String Bands, who make their own musical fanfare. And then there are the Fancy Brigades, who put their own spin on a time-honored Mummers tradition by taking their revelry inside the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

The most theatrical of the bunch, the 11 Fancy Brigade clubs get into character with lavish costumes, elaborate floats and props, then take center stage to perform Broadway-quality choreographed skits.

Mummers pull out all the stops in a show that is a year in the making, all for bragging rights for the most festive New Year's display.

START on New Year's Eve with a daytime visit to MummersFest. It is the behind-the-scenes look at the making of Philadelphia's famous New Year's Day parade, indoors at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

RETURN to the Pennsylvania Convention Center at 11:30 a.m. on New Year's Day for all the excitement and action of the 2 and a half hour Mummers Fancy Brigade Finale Noon Family Show.
