I think we all like something when it is done with love, with passion. Add artistry and combine all that with Mummery, and then you’ve got everything. Harry Brown, Jr., of Quaker City String Band sent me this photo below and I just think it is beautiful.
It’s a display created by 4th grader Justin Figueroa at Parkway Elementary School in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. Justin is a junior member of QCSB. However, after this evidence, I think Justin is ready to be on a parade planning committee.
Congratulations to his dad, Karl, a member of the 1st Prize winning String Band of the 2014 SugarHouse Casino Mummers Parade. Very nice, Justin.
As Harry Brown wrote to me, “It’s a good sign when the next generation is starting to take over.”
