For the past 4 years the Vaudevillains NYB has taken part in the Mummers Parade in Philly. They have been serving up hot dance moves, poppy jams, and day-glow costumes in the comics category with political commentary thrown into the mix. I have had the pleasure of marching in the brigade for the past two years, and let me just say it's a much better way to spend new years day than with a raging hangover. Save your partying for Two Street!
The theme this year was Philly Phantasy Phorest, featuring lots of fantastical creatures and trees fighting against the hydraulic fracturing (fracking) industry that is decimating the environment all over Pennsylvania and many other places. Currently PA is the only state where it is legal to dump toxic wastewater into rivers and streams.
