Happy Mummers Day



Happy New Year! Or as we say in certain circles in Philadelphia, Happy Mummers Day!

What's a mummer?

What type of Mummer is MFD? 
He's in The Joseph A. Ferko String Band. The String Bands are the last division to perform and Ferko goes up third out of 16 string bands. They are supposed to be on TV around 1:20 but the parade is typically running behind (live stream link below), so start checking in then if you specifically want to see them or a little earlier if you want to catch all the string bands - it's quite a production with the music and the costumes and props; and a time honored tradition to put a good show out on the street on New Year's Day. Below: the past three years. Today is MFD's 29th parade. Best of luck to him & Ferko and all of our framily in other bands.

  10. I would love to see this in person but that would mean a) getting a hotel on NYE and b) this Texan who froze when it was 50 this morning dressing like Ralphie in A Christmas Story. Maybe one year I can swing it if it's unseasonably warm...
