Philadelphia Mummers 2011 Part 1

Check out this lovely review of The Duke & The Pirate Queen at The Discriminating Fangirl!

On New Year’s Day, a friend and I went to the annual New Year’s Day Philadelphia Mummers’ Parade. I took a ton of pictures, so even a selection is going to take me a couple of posts.

Note the Superman curl.

There goes Clark Kent!

A few of the floats.

Who Dat Froggy Carr?

These Frogs posed for me. The brick building behind them is the historic Academy of Music.

Still more Frogs!

Still Life Between Brigades.

About Victoria Janssen

Victoria Janssen [she, her] currently writes cozy space opera for Kalikoi. The novella series A Place of Refuge begins with Finding Refuge: Telepathic warrior Talia Avi, genius engineer Miki Boudreaux, and augmented soldier Faigin Balfour fought the fascist Federated Colonies for ten years, following the charismatic dissenter Jon Churchill. Then Jon disappeared, Talia was thought dead, and Miki and Faigin struggled to take Jon’s place and stay alive. When the FC is unexpectedly upended, Talia is reunited with her friends and they are given sanctuary on the enigmatic planet Refuge. The trio of former guerillas strive to recover from lifetimes of trauma, build new lives on a planet with endless horizons, and forge tender new connections with each other.
