Happy New Year's again! Here in Philadelphia the year starts off with a bang and a Mummer's parade. I spent the day watching the parade on TV with some friends, but stepped out around 4 to see them up close and personal. It amazes me that all these regular Joe-schmo types get all dressed up and learn dance routines for the parade. There were a lot of masks and feathers and sequins lighting up Broad Street.
I'm wondering if there's much money in Mummer design.... The costumes are out of this world.
