Haven't watched the Mummer's parade in ages. In fact, I haven't watched any parades in a long time. Interests change over the years. What I used to enjoy years ago, now seems to bore me. It's a shame though. The Mummers were always a festive part of the holidays. The Mummers obviously work very hard to perform for the public. I'm sure they are still appreciated by many and I hope they continue to be successful.
