It's almost official.
Mere moments before their annual New Year's Day parade, the Mummers have a tentative contract with the city, George Badey III, chairman of www.savethemummers.com said today.
"We have a tentative deal and I have to get approval from all my members," Badey said. "I’m fairly confident everything will be fine."
Mayor Nutter has scheduled a press conference with the Mummers tomorrow morning to announce the agreement. Badey said the city had promised to provide information the Mummers want -- a detailed inovice of the parade costs and copies of the contracts for other parades and special events in the city.
