[EVENT RECAP] Setting up Seating at the Mummer’s Parade

It’s already been a great start to the new year for Mountain Productions. People from all over the world welcomed 2013 at Times Square during the New Year’s Eve celebration (or stayed warm and enjoyed the show from the comfort of home). Mountain has been providing staging for this event for over 15 years, and we are proud and grateful to be part of this iconic event. READ MORE HERE.

Another great event that took place on the first of the year was a Philadelphia tradition: the Mummer’s Parade.

The parade is not only a celebration of the New Year, but a competitive event that is taken very serious by Philadelphia natives. The Mummer’s tradition has roots in Roman history, where laborers would wear masks and march throughout the day. Now, Philadelphia residents take part in various contests and competitions involving elaborate costumes and moveable scenery. Visit the Mummer’s Parade website to learn more.

Mountain Productions provided seating and the judges’ platform for this exciting parade. A bleacher system was installed for public seating. Mountain’s seating solutions are strong, reliable and most important, safe. Great for temporary use or permanent installations, our seating has been used by entertainment venues, special events and universities for years.
