This Mummers Parade is being organised since 1901. It is believed to be the oldest folk festival in the United States.
The New Years Associations and other local club compete in one of four categories i.e. comics, fancies, string bands, and fancy brigades. They prepare elaborate costumes and moveable scenery, which take months to complete.
