Mummers Parade

The 5th annual Mummers Festival took place recently closing with a parade on December 14, 2013 in St. John's. The festival is a celebration and revival of the tradition of Mummering and Janneying in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The tradition was for Mummers to visit homes dressed in disguise. People would put together disguises using whatever they could find around their homes to make them unrecognizable to the people of the homes they visit.

The mummers parade is a chance for people to let their hair down, to play around and have some fun. And as you can see from the photos below they had a lot of it!
