Many years ago I had the pleasure of watching the New Years Mummers Parade in Philly. That New Years Eve we had quite a snow storm...but that did not stop me and my Cherry Hill, NJ family from going to the parade in Philly. It was blustery cold...but the city managed to clear the PARADE ROUTE and the MUMMERS STEPPED OFF THE PARADE LINE with gusto. It amazed me to see how well they controlled the beautiful head dresses. One would think they would have been blown to another state:-)
I plan to visit my NJ son and his family again at New Years in the future...and I sure hope the MUMMERS Parade will still be around for us to view. Its spectacular...like nothing you've ever seen!
