The Mummers come to town in a big way for the next couple of days, between the marquee Mummers Parade on New Year’s Day and MummersFest, a full weekend of Mummer-centric events and behind-the-scenes tours of some of the things that make the parade great.
From December 28 through 31, visit the Pennsylvania Convention Center to get in on the action of MummersFest.
Try on real-life Mummers costumes, learn steps to the Mummers strut, make themed crafts, watch the designers put finishing touches on the floats and watch the Mummers practice their dances before the big reveal on New Year’s Day.
