For the first time in twelve years, the Mummers parade gets its first new Fancy Brigade. The group will be performing first at the Convention Center on January 1st, per tradition. Their name? “The Spartans.” Their shtick? A Native American theme: “bows and arrows and spears and a lot of feathers — of course there are.” Spartans, Indians, whatever. They’re all just fighters, right? [CBS3]
