Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/27/2014 -- Celebrating 20 years of Mummers Brigade Weekend, many brigades took part in the Wildwood block party festivities on Friday, July 13 and Saturday, July 14. Mummers’ fans were treated to a parade down Olde New Jersey Avenue where they took in the sights and sounds of costumes, pageantry, music, and dancing. As the weekend featured some of the most renowned brigades from the New Year’s Day parade, the team from ADVENT who produces Mummers Mardi Gras was on hand to scout sects for upcoming Mardi Gras festivities.
The brigades are used to putting on a show, and experiencing the chance to march down the streets of Wildwood without the pressure of competition that they feel in the Philly Mummers parade made the performance extra special. Using these moments to enhance the atmosphere at Mummers Mardi Gras, the ADVENT team closely watched the performances and dances to retain acts for next year’s event. This on-hand approach at attending the various Mummers events throughout the year will draw additional brigades and string bands to become involved with future Mummers traditions.
With the incorporation of the Mardi Gras event, fans and attendees can relive the powerful sights, and add to the tradition of the Mummers parade in Philadelphia. For inquiries about being a part of the second annual Mummers Mardi Gras in 2015, please visit the website today for more information. To catch all the Mummers festivities, be sure to return to North Wildwood in September for the Mummers String Band Show on September 6.
