In Philadelphia, New Year's Day MEANS: The MUMMERS' PARADE!!!!
----
And AFTER the parade (in the frigid streets), there's the Mummers' FANCY BRIGADE competition inSIDE the Convention Center. This is the second year that I have been privileged to shoot the "Fancies" with Bill. It's three hours of colorful, musical extravaganza to delight your eyes, your ears, and your IMAGINATIONS!
---
Fancy Brigade sets and costumes are VERY elaborate, with each costume costing upwards of a thousand dollars.
