Hoboken’s 119th Annual Memorial Day Parade will take place on Wednesday, May 24th, 2017. The parade will assemble at 6:00pm and step off at 6:30pm from City Hall (1st 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 marks the 119th year of marching up Washington Street to honor those that made the ultimate sacrifice. It is also the oldest continuous parade in the State of New Jersey.
Washington Street will initially be closed between 1st Street and Observer Highway at approximately 6pm for the assembly of the parade. NJ Transit buses will be diverted to Hudson Street and Bloomfield Street at that time. Washington Street and side streets will be closed as the parade proceeds northbound. Police will be on hand to direct traffic throughout the area. Drivers should expect delays in the area during the parade.
