It's just not New Year's Day in Philadelphia without a Mummer's parade. Most noted for their incredibly elaborate and eye-popping costumes, outfits typically resemble a Japanese Samurai crossed with a peacock covered with diamonds and rubies. The music is a wild mix of banjos, horns, drums and wind instruments, playing arrangements of old and contemporary songs. Mummers Museum chronicles and displays the parade over the years, including many of the grandiose, ostentatious, completely outrageous costumes and masks. Open tuesday to saturday 9:30am onwards.
