WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE MUMMERS PARADE
HOW TO PREPARE AND WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE MUMMERS PARADE
J-Walk: The Mummers. On New Year’s Day celebrate the decriminalization of marijuana in Philly, the legalization of Medical Marijuana in Pennsylvania AND partizzle in the oldest folk parade in the US – The Mummers Parade. By strutting down Broad St. with an inflatable 51 ft. joint you’ll help spread the word that good people use marijuana for recreational and medical use, and have a BLAST as a Mummer! Our group, The Philadelphia Pranking Authority, part of the Comics Division, has marched in the parade for seven years. This year we’re opening it up FOR YOU TO JOIN.
Prepare: To be at the Parade by as early as 8AM; for cold weather; to stand around a lot; to hurry up and wait; to joyza!
Costumes and signs: Create your own costume in a “Marijuana Theme,” OR, the theme “Con Game.” Ex: Medical Marijuana, it’s No Con; No More Convicts, Legalize Pot; The Moon Landing is a Con; The Wrath of Con… Have fun, be creative ; Default costume = wear GREEN.
Registration: $20 fee for your Mummers Badge and a contribution to the food pantry PHILABUNDANCE ; fee is nonrefundable ; badges are mandatory to be on Broad St. ; pick up badges on New Years Day at the parade site.
The $20 fee gets you into in the January 1, 2017 Mummer’s Parade and an official Mummer’s badge that you’ll pick up at the parade (and is yours to keep). The cost helps cover backdrops, props, crowd swag and a donation to the food pantry PHILABUNDANCE. Invite a friend! Come in a CON JOB costume or just wear all green. NO REFUNDS.

Start time of the parade is announced last week in December.
