Hi there.... I am a huge mummers fan who lives in Nazareth, PA, and an accordion player with the Uptown String Band. Here you will find finishing orders from all the string band portion of the parades.

I realize I did not amass all this information. It was from a gentleman who had a page up with all the prize info, it was about 1997. If anyone knows who it was, I will give rightful credit.

If I left anything out, please e-mail me so I can fill in the info. Thanks for looking!
