The Sugarhouse Casino Presents The Mummers – My Fav Pixs

I know a day late, here are my favorite Mummer photos. This year I decided to credential to shoot the parade instead of just shooting from the sidelines. When I applied I thought it was going to be 45F, as it stated in the 15 day outlook.

It was a lot of fun, being that cold made the whole parade feel like a community, cause we were all in the same boat, kinda. I did have the opportunity to party hop, which I did about every ninety minutes.

I headed to McCormick & Schmick’s for the Sugarhouse Casino/PHL17 Party. It was exactly what I needed, I warmed up, got a bite to eat and uploaded photos to CBS3, which you can see here.
Thanks Wendy Hamilton, GM Sugarhouse Casino, here with her son.

Definitely the best dressed at the parade

The crowd made a circle and everyone enjoyed the performance

The cutest thing, the Mummer shared a pair of gloves with a young fan

This mummer had photos of children around his neck

Then I headed to the Kimmel Center for their family fun day. It was fairly crowded for the frigid day.

There was a lot of fun happening. There was face painting and balloon crafts, this guy is making wings for the little girl

This is definitely the place for families to attend every year

On the 3rd floor, there was a Jose Garces Brunch until 3PM, when the floor was open to the public to check out the parade from the terrace.
There was also an area where families helped packaged healthy food for the needy in Philly

There were two lines of folks creating packages

Some Mummer spectators brought home souvenir.
All in all it was a fun day, in fact I think it was one of the best events. There was plenty of room and barely any crazies making a scene.
