Mummers and Carnavaleros: A tradition of inclusion?

 04/16/2015 - 13:37

This year’s San Mateo Carnavalero event will be held April 26 at 12:30 p.m. starting at 806 Moyamensing Ave., continuing down Washington Avenue and concluding with a celebration at Sacks Park in South Philly.

Up until recently the suggestion that masqueraders of "San Mateo Carnavalero" should join the long standing and massive parade of the "Mummers" had been nothing more than our suggestion. However recently there was a real rapprochement between multiple local cultural carnivals, all of which had, until then, remained mostly disconnected.
