The 92nd Annual Alsatia Mummers’ Parade will kick off on Saturday, October
28, 2017 at 6 p.m. In the fall of 1921, the subject of Halloween vandalism
and mischievous pranksters arose. Alsatia members voiced a concern for
it....and hence the Alsatia Mummers’ Parade came to be as a means of
attracting people to participate or to be a spectator at the Parade in order
to eliminate some of the vandalism and pranks. With the exception of the WW
II years and the 2011 snow storm Parade day morning, the Parade has been held
annually since 1921.

In its early years, the parade was financed entirely by the members of the
Alsatia Club. As it grew and became more expensive to produce, the assistance
of the City of Hagerstown, the Washington County Gaming Commission / Board of
County Commissioners of Washington County, Maryland, Washington County Public
Schools, The Maryland Theatre, the merchants, manufacturers, business and
professional men and women of Washington County have helped make it possible
to fulfill the slogan of “Bigger and Better Each Year. "
