Mummers

At the Philadelphia stop, some of the world famous Mummers made a special appearance at the MINI Takes The States stop and performed some of their music and struts.

Having spent much of my younger life in Pennsylvania, I know their little show was an eye-opener to many of the MTTS visitors to that fine city.   http://mummers.com/

PhillyMini.org MINI owners and members were present, and all had a good time. http://phillymini.org/

    In a “nut shell”, they are costumed parade dancers and musicians, most noted for their performances with 4 string struming banjos on the New Year’s Day Parade in Philadelphia.
