Gotta Be Mummers!

There is nothing quite like the dress and talents of Mummers! I saw them in person recently in a local parade in Pennsylvania and was very amused and entertained!

The Mummers trace back to mid-17th century roots, blending elements from Swedish, Finnish, Irish, English, German and other European heritages, as well as African heritage.

I bet the don't wear those outfits to the grocery store! This was really interesting, Jeff - I knew nothing about the Mummers (until now!)!!

Quite the costumes! I don't believe I've ever seen them perform!
