South Philly has been ground-zero for the Philadelphia Mummers for a century. South Jersey makes up about 40-percent of participants in the oldest continuous folk parade in America. But few news organizations in New Jersey cover the parade.
Since 2013, Carly Q. Romalino has followed Mummers in all divisions of the parade as they prepare for New Years Day. She's covered the parade through live broadcasts and other social media.
This collection of live videos were broadcast on Courier-Post's Facebook page on Jan. 1, 2017.
