Crowds in Philadelphia welcome the start of 2023 at the Mummers Parade

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — People welcomed 2023 in Philadelphia at the only place you should be on New Year’s Day: along South Broad Street for the Mummers Parade!

For some people, this was their first Mummers Parade in person. For others, this is a tradition and they come with the family year after year.

People told Action News they love that this is a Philly-only celebration.

“It’s like Mardi Gras but it’s so great on New Year’s Day in Philly,” exclaimed Katie Cathey.

Some who aren’t originally from here started watching the Mummers to get used to the Philadelphians.

“My family started bringing me here to be a part of Philadelphia. It just felt right,” said Renaud.

When all the celebrations wrap up on Sunday, groups will have about a week off until they start planning for 2024!
