The parade kicks off at 2PM from The Stocking Works on South State Street, travels north to Washington Avenue and makes a left. Then continues east one block to Sycamore Street and then make another right turn. The Parade will then continue north on Sycamore Street and ends at Durham Road.  Last year over 50 groups participated, over 1800 people participated and several thousand lined the streets to watch.  We are very excited about the McCaffrey’s Food Market’s Newtown Holiday Parade.  We strongly encourage all participants to be creative in showcasing a festive holiday theme for their group.

Four Mummer Bands will participate!

January 1, 2006 marked the band’s fifty-ninth consecutive appearance in the spectacular Philadelphia Parade. Since its inception, the band has achieved a 6.4 average prize. The band, known as “GKSB”, has taken first prize on two occasions, 1979 and 1988, and has finished in the top ten an impressive forty one times including seventeen years in the prestigious top five.

Whether fans are braving the frigid temperatures on the parade route or enjoying our performance from the comfort of their home, the Quaker City String Band has consistently been a “fan favorite.”The members of Quaker City have used their creativity and innovative style to consistently be a top prize winner in the yearly String Band competition. The challenge of creating a different theme every year with new music, costumes and choreography is one that the Quaker City String Band gladly accepts, striving to out-do themselves annually.The Quaker City String Band takes its unique form of entertainment to audiences throughout the Philadelphia area and in Cuba, Mexico, England, Canada, France, Ireland and Italy.
