Kory Aversa Philadelphia 2012 Mummers ParadeThe new year got off to a great start with the annual Mummers Parade, presented by Sugar House Casino.  The parade started right near my home, at Broad and Oregon and wound all the way through Philadelphia, down Broad Street, ending at City Hall.  Later in the day, the Fancy Brigades kept the city entertained through the live broadcast on MyPHL 17.  

The Mummers had a perfect day to march down the streets of Philadelphia and spread the holiday cheer.  It seemed that the 50 degree, sunny, warm day helped them bring Philadelphian's even more pagentry than usual! 

Check out these great videos of two performances — complete with live strings, dancing, props, feathers and lots of glitter.  Happy new year!
