If you have never attended the New Year's Day Mummers Parade (sponsored by Southwest Airlines), you really need to check it out. Great weather is forecast for Saturday and parade viewing should be as pleasant as it has been in decades. The Mummers are one of Philadelphia's greatest cultural treasures and really need to be seen in their full glory to be appreciated. If you cannot make it out, tune in to Channel 17 - the parade will be on from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Another recommendation: the "Show of Shows" is an annual indoor performance by Mummer string bands. This year's event will be held on Saturday, February 26, 2005 at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall. It's a great family event, more entertaining than "Nemo on Ice".
