HOBOKEN -- Hoboken’s Annual Memorial Day Parade - the oldest continuous parade in New Jersey - will take place on Wednesday, May 22. This year marks the 115th year of marching up Washington Street to honor those that made the ultimate sacrifice.

The parade will assemble at 6 p.m. and step off at 6:30 p.m. from City Hall (First Street and Washington Street) and proceed north on Washington Street to the reviewing stand on 10th Street & Washington Street in front of the Hoboken Elks Lodge.

This year the Grand Marshal is Vietnam veteran Tom Brereton. In addition, seven marching bands, several JROTC Cadet groups from Hudson County, and many Boy Scouts & Girl Scout troops from Hoboken will join the parade.

A great turnout of marchers and viewers for this honored event for our vets who made the supreme sacrifice. I am proud to be a part of this parade since 1960, and have missed marching in only one.

May the USA live forever.
