The Mummers have been parading down Philadelphia's streets since the beginning of the 20th century. A New Year's Day tradition, teams of Mummers dress up in costume and dance down Broad Street all the way to city hall. The Mummers Museum, located in the heart of South Philly, tells the history and pageantry of the tradition.
