Mummers 2007 Philadelphia

What a wacky way to start off 2007 in Philadelphia. First, the annual Mummers Parade was postponed, then after a few switches and time changes, it played out in weather that reached the 70’s F. I got screwed, having to work that day but was able to get out in time and catch the Stringbands perform at City Hall for the judges. Later I was off to 2 Street in South Philly to see a few of them perform in front their home clubs. Special thanks to Dave Dougherty for filling in for Demanda who also had to work. And congradulations to Fralinger Stringband for making it 5 first place finishes in a row.
