When you think of the Mummers, you think of New Year's Day on Broad Street.. but not this weekend! PHL17 joined the Mummers in Manayunk for the Third Annual Mummers Mardi Gras. About 13,000 Philadelphians (twice as many as last year!) were in attendance to see all 17 String Bands perform a modified version of their NYD performance. Children also enjoyed this family-friendly event at Mummers Headquarters on Main Street, where there was music, face-painting, masks, and photo booth photos.
