The 1st annual Mummers Appreciation Weekend has been humming and strumming right along at SugarHouse Casino in Fishtown. Hundreds of Mummers have been stopping by since Friday afternoon. The Battle of the Bands, a string band competition, has been taking place today.
SugarHouse is also giving away a “Mummed-up” Harley Davidson motorcycle Sunday afternoon. Only Mummers are eligible and the winner has to be present to win. The bike really looks good. Love the art work on the gas tank.
The casino was the presenting sponsor of the 2012 SugarHouse Casino Mummers Parade and is showing its appreciation for these goodwill ambassadors of the City of Philadelphia. Members of Hog Island, members of Murray Comic Club, Mummers from various string bands and fancy brigades were there. Folks from PHL17 also took part in the good food and drink.
