We highlight 2 or 3 upcoming conventions in the city of Philadelphia on this blog series. Take a look, sign up and consider those Philadelphia conventions that appeal to you most.

The 2013 Mummers Show of Shows:

I can tell you from first hand experience and as a resident of Philadelphia for more than 35 years… The Mummers Parade is a “must see”. There is nothing like it in all the land and may deserve to be on your bucket list. Next year on February 23 taking place at the legendary Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City New Jersey will be the incredible Mummers bands. If you have never seen that historic Mummers Bands in the great city of Philadelphia or Atlantic City, your time is coming up soon. Come see the prize-winning performances and truly spectacular costumes at these string bands will perform for you. The Showtime is 3:00 PM on February 23 of 2013.

This year, at his store at Boardwalk Hall, this fantastic tradition continues. For more than 100 years the city of Philadelphia has been dazzled each and every new year by the great spectacle of music and showmanship in one of this country’s longest and oldest folk parades. This year, there will be 16 string that that will perform their usual New Year’s Day presentation by string bands and other acts that have been participating for decades.

Believe it or not actual Mummers traditions date as far back as 400 BC. The Mummers explain it this way from their own website: this tradition started at the Roman festival of Saturnalias where lab workers marched in mass throughout the day satire and gift exchange. This included Celtic variations of trick-or-treat engine and Druidic noisemaking to drive away demons for the new year. The 1st official Mummers Parade was held on January 1, 1901 and it was the city Philadelphia that offer prize money. This has become a Philadelphia ritual ever since and if it’s something that you have never seen here is your chance.

My company had an international artist picked up at JFK and dropped off in Philadelphia, and the artist had the best time. The driver kept in touch with me throughout the day, so we could plan for arrival, and our artist had the most wonderful experience with the driver. That’s really astounding considering our artist had just gotten off a red-eye from across the world. Thank you so very much!
