The Mummers Parade is held on New Year's Day in Philadelphia. It is the oldest folk festival in the United States.
Thousands of people adorned in colorful costumes walk down Broad Street in Philadelphia for the longest-running traditional folk parade in the country.
The mummers dedicate an entire year to crafting their costumes, writing their skits and rehearsing their performances.
This event gives visitors an experience that is unique and very much worth a visit.
