The excitement kicks off Friday night at 7 p.m., with the annual Mummers Pub Crawl. Mummers members and friends will celebrate the brigade’s return to the Wildwoods by visiting some of North Wildwood’s most well-known eating and drinking establishments throughout the evening.

The fun continues on Saturday with a block party on Olde New Jersey Avenue from 3:30– 4:45 p.m. The Mummers Parade will step off on 2nd and Olde New Jersey Avenues in North Wildwood at 4:45 p.m. and will feature 10 brigades from this year’s New Year’s Day Parade in Philadelphia, PA.

The brigades will perform without the pressure of competition, and spectators will be able to get up-close views of the beautiful costumes and intricate dance steps these eccentric performers display.

Best of all, the parade is FREE to attend, so come on out and strut your stuff at the Annual Mummers Brigade Weekend in the Wildwoods. Also, save the date for the upcoming Mummers String Band Show on Saturday, September 6, 2014 in North Wildwood.
