Their preliminary hearings are scheduled for Tuesday before District Judge Michael Zungali of Hastings.
Mummers strut in Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA – Believed to be the nation’s oldest folk festival, the Mummers Parade is often known as Philadelphia’s Mardi Gras and features heavily costumed and painted comics, string bands and other brigades that march down Broad Street, the city’s main north-south thoroughfare.
Thousands turned out to watch Tuesday on a chilly and overcast day as the tradition was renewed for the 113th year.
One skit featured a festooned, glittery yellow tank and a gigantic red, white and blue Uncle Sam hat and was geared toward thanking members of the military.
Another featured performers massed into a sea of pink to commemorate breast cancer awareness.
The Second Street Stompers had on yellow hard hats as they marched and strutted in their blue and yellow skirts.
Another group honored the show “American Bandstand,” which originated in Philadelphia.
The parade became an official city-sponsored event in 1901.
