Where Can You See the Mummers Parade Live?

Philadelphia holds the Mummers Parade every New Year's Day. In 2015, the parade began at Philadelphia's City Hall and headed south on Broad Street to Washington Avenue. Spectators can stand along Broad Street or view the parade from bleachers set up by various local businesses along the route.

Mummers of different kinds perform at one of four performance sites along the parade route. Fancy Brigades perform in the Pennsylvania Convention Center to accommodate their large sets. The official judging takes place at the route's end at Philadelphia's City Hall. WPHL-TV broadcasts the event and live streams it on its website.
