Description

The Mummers Parade has long been a Philadelphia tradition in which residents wear disguises on New Year’s Day. Since Palm Beach Gardens was a relatively new city in 1963, many of its residents were RCA employees who had been transferred from their facility in Camden, NJ and were looking for a way to continue their Mummers tradition. William D. Stellman was the first president of the Mummers Association of Palm Beach Gardens. The group was known to have carried out at least three parades during the early years of the city, but faded out of attention by the 1970s.
