Thousands of mummers parade the streets of Philadelphia on New Year's day. Revelers dressed in amusingly elaborate costumes exhibit a sparkling show. Various decorative displays and movable scenery can also be seen. People gather in number across streets and witness the colorful event. A costumed pair are announced with a banner that reads 'Marie Antoinette...Louis XVI' while another vignette in which crude dentistry is mimed is identified by a sign on a car that reads, 'Duke and Duchess of Winsores Arrive for Big Yank' Many performers are seen in black face.
