Wordless Wednesday: Our Philadelphia Mummers Parade Family Tradition

Every year since I have born, it has been a tradition to head to Broad Street in Philadelphia to see our family members off for the New Year’s Parade.  This year my husband, son, Dad, father-in-law, Brother-in-law, husband’s cousins and a few family friends participated in the parade. 
For my Dad, it was his 58th year marching with Woodland Stringband on New Year’s Day- and for the first time in his lifetime, Woodland finished first place in the Stringband Division.
My husband and son’s band, South Philadelphia Stringband, came in third place.
I am so proud of all of them for all of the hard work and effort they put in all year to be able to give such awesome performances.
Here is a peek at some of their props and costumes this year:
