May 25 – Memorial Day Parade – Cancelled – Now a Video Parade
For the first time in more than 65 years, there will be no parade down Springfield Avenue in New Providence on Memorial Day.
The parade has been a mainstay in the community, rain or shine dating back to 1954. The decision to cancel this year’s Memorial Day parade was made with a heavy heart in light of the continuing threat to our community from the COVID-19 pandemic.
In cooperation with American Legion Post #433, the Borough of New Providence will be putting together a video of past parades as a way of properly saying thank you to all of the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We are interested in collecting any past New Providence Memorial Day pictures you may have between 1954 and 2019 to be included in the video. Photos can be of any aspect of the parade; community groups, marching band, military, wreath laying ceremonies, etc.
To submit a photo, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Parade Photos” in the subject line by May 1st. Contact Bernadette Cuccaro, Community Activities Director at 908-665-8258 with any questions.
