Look out! Mummers want your long johns!

The Mummers Festival is looking for donations of old, clean mummers garb to be used during our annual Rig Up! This free community event allows anyone to dress up in the perfect disguise just prior to the Mummers Parade on Saturday, December 19th, 2015.

All donations are welcome, but especially useful items include things such as:
  • Lace curtains or pillowcases to cover the face
  • Silly household items that can be used as hats (Tea cozies, colanders, lampshades, etc)
  • Wigs, masks, mittens
  • Loose-fitting clothes that can be worn over winter clothes so our mummers stay warm!
  • Kooky dresses (unwanted wedding dresses welcome!) 
  • Fishermen’s oilskins, hunting jackets, flannel
  • Aprons
  • Longjohns
  • Anything else you can envision a mummer wearing!

From November 6th to December 14th drop-off boxes will be stationed at:

A.C. Hunter Library
Arts and Culture Centre
125 Allandale Rd

Michael Donovan Public Library
655 Topsail Rd

Marjorie Mews Public Library
12 Highland Drive

We will also be accepting donations all day on November 24th, 25th, and 26th out of Victoria Park Poolhouse.
