North Wildwood Fancy Brigade Weekend
Since 1995 on the 2nd weekend in June the Mummers Fancy Brigade Association invades the beautiful summer island resort of North Wildwood, New Jersey.
The weekend is full of sun, fun and of course parading. The weekend begins on Friday Night with the now famous Mummers Pub Crawl. Join in this most fun Pub Crawl as Brigade members and friends visit all of North Wildwood's most well known establishments (Keenan's Irish Pub, Westy's Irish Pub, #1 Tavern, Echo's, Casey's on 3rd and 2nd Street Annie's were on the 2007 Crawl).
On Saturday starting @ 4:30PM the parade on Old New Jersey Ave. kicks-off featuring the top seven brigades from the New Year's Day Parade. Even if you attended the New Year’s show you will get a different perspective as this is a fun parade. The brigades perform without the pressure of competition for family, friends and visitors.
Witness close-up the beautiful costumes and intricate dance steps performed by each brigade. Don't be surprised if you are asked to join in the fun to learn the famous "mummers strut".
Following the Parade @ 6:30PM will be the Fancy Brigades "Old Fashion Family Block Party" as brigade members stroll and dance on Old New Jersey Ave. Entertainment is provided till 8:00PM. Games and dance contests will be part of the 2010 Block Party.
And best of all there is no charge to attend either the parade or block party. Hope to see you there!
