TOP LIVE EVENTS
The live stream of the Philadelphia Mummers parade makes this one of the most watched parades in the world, with viewers tuning in from far and wide to watch this spectacular event as well as the thousands lining the parade route itself.
The parade is a new year tradition on a scale unique to this city, bringing crowds out into the streets to watch a veritable cavalcade of sound and colour as floats, performers and various acts take to the streets to celebrate the start of another new year.
Mummers Parade organsiers were early adopters when it comes to online streaming, and the parade has been available for people to watch around the world for several years now, whether they are Philadelphia expats feeling nostalgic for their home town or just interested viewers looking for something a little different to watch on new years day. Either way, the Philadelphia Mummers parade is a fabulous new year's day spectacle, an event we can highly recommend.
The Mummers parade route for 2019 is likely to be the same as last year, beginning at 15th and Market near Dilworth Park for the judging prior to moving down to City Hall.
The parade will then travel south where is ends on Broad Street and Washington Avenue.
There will be 4 different performance areas along the parade route this year, located at:
15th and Market Street
Broad and Sansom Street
Broad and Pine Street
Broad and Carpenter Street
