Check out the Flickr group for the newest Mummers club, the Vaudvillains! They are a group from an art collective ("creative community") in Philly called Space 1026 and they organized their first comic brigade in this year's Mummers parade, making their own costumes and props and doing their own makeup. I am thoroughly inspired (and maybe want to join them next year). Here's a link to a video of their parade dance.
