A Philadelphia Tradtion

We here in the Delaware Valley have a New Years Day tradition.
The Mummers Parade.


What's a Mummer?
Take a gander:
It's grown men, well now women & some children, but it started as grown men, who dress up in garish, flamboyant costumes, then strum some banjo's & "strut" up Philly's Broadway.


It's an all day affair
&
It's televised.


I hate it.
Really.
I mean, it's a tradition & I am sort of proud of it but do I wanna watch?
No.
Do I wanna go to the parade?
No.


Sigh.


Tell me, what's your areas tradition?
