Mummers March in Philadelphia Despite Official Parade Cancellation

A crowd of Mummers marched through the streets of South Philadelphia on New Year’s Day to protest the official parade cancellation due to coronavirus concerns.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported some 200 people participated in the unsanctioned parade that was framed as a protest.

The annual parade has been a source of controversy for the city, mostly recently in 2020, when some officials called for it to be overhauled after racist expressions from some participants. Credit: @ChaiMike26 via Storyful
