As is our annual tradition to ring in the New Year, we will have a Mummers Parade Setup Fun Run on Thursday, January 1, at 8:30 a.m. Instead of Front & South, we will start in front of the Mummers Museum (1100 S 2nd Street) at 2nd and Washington. Just as in prior years, we will run by a few of the Mummers warehouses as they prepare to march down Broad Street, but this time, we plan on swinging up to Logan Square, where the parade sets will be located for this year’s parade. Be sure to wear your golden sneakers, feathers, and other pieces of flair. Post-run reception hosted by Amy Papendorf.
