Mummer's Parade-Philadelphia,­ PA

  • Jan 1, 2013 · 6:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The Mummer's Day Parade is long time, and very colorful tradition held New Years Day in Philadelphia. For those unfamiliar with it, Mummer's is very similar to the Mardi Gras Parades of New Orleans. It is great opportunity for colorful and festive images. The day is well worth the drive but will have logistical challenges. Taking a bus is not a viable option, so the size of our gathering will be dependent of the willingness of some members to drive.

For those who want to go, respond early, and confirm whether you have a willingness to drive or would need a ride. I need to know who is going before Christmas to allow time to coordinate the trip. The drive about three hours and as is customary, passengers help defer the cost of fuel and tolls.

    What a lot of fun - it was great to catch up with everyone at the parade. We should do this again next year!

    I don't mean to be a pain about this, but it would be nice to know where we're planning to meet IN PHILLY - I'd like to meet you all and hang out and shoot together, but I kind of need to know this beforehand since I'll already be in Philly the night before (my birthday). Or if someone wants to call me when you arrive, I can pass my cell # to Ken or someone else.

      Scott, I emailed you my phone number yesterday. We should arrive around 10AM. I plan to park down near city hall, and we can work our way down Broad Street from there. Give me a your number and I will call you once we arrive.

    Ken, I can drive and fit 3 more people in my car - coming from Silver Spring.

      Clara, Kristen and I are going to meet in Silver Spring at 6:30. Do you want to give me a call or send me a note so we can make arrangements? It looks like it may only take about 15-20 minutes to get to either Bethesda or Twinbrook, particularly at that time in the morning.

    I'm not officially on the rolls to go, however I plan to drive up. Has it been decided on where to meet before departing DC? I would like to be with the group on the drive and when we get to PA.

    Hey guys,

    I really do want to go to this but I think it would be a wise decision if I went another time. My new years plans for this year probably won't get me home until 2 or 3 in the morning if not later so waking up at 6 wouldn't be a good idea. The Mummer's Parade in Philly is exactly the kind of things I'd like to visit and photograph, so hopefully I'll be able to attend the next meet up!

    Has there been any discussion of where we'll meet in Philly? I'm going up the night before and would like to join everyone. I'm thinking of stationing myself somewhere between Spruce and Pine (there's a performance stop right around Pine street).
    Here's the route map -

    Ken,
    I noticed the time stamp on the little calendar attachment of your original post, says 6:45 am.
    Is that when we are al supposed to meet? I just want to be sure...if that is the meeting time, then we all must be on the road at about 3:45 am.
    Also, where do we meet once we are in Philly?

      Hi George,
      I posted a reply on the 23rd, but it looks like it didn't go through.
      Springfield isn't far away, we can pick you up; just let us know the time and place.

    Hi all, this would be my first time joining the group- it sounds like fun. Pretty sure I can come and I could drive. I could meet people by Union Station, downtown DC or in MD (Silver Spring?). If we already have enough drivers I could ride with someone to help cover travel expenses.

    This sounds right up my alley- I would need a ride from Arlington though.
