7th Annual Hoboken Baby Parade

The 2008 Hoboken Baby Parade

Despite the threat of rain many people braved the weather for this year’s Baby Parade. It began with a lineup at Sinatra Park. The strollers were then forced into the street by the construction surrounding the still not finished World War II Memorial before passing the long delayed Pier C Park. Then it was a walk up the Waterfront Walkway to Pier A, where Mayor David Roberts originally wanted to put a high-rise office building.

Happily, parks advocates prevailed and the baby parade rounded a beautiful park before coming to an end in front of the fountains. Awards were given to the babies and families with the most festive costumes. There were so many cute babies to choose from. Check out all the photos to see if you can find anyone you know, including an elected official or two.

Special thanks to Hoboken411 reader Gabriella for the pictures!!

New Photo Gallery Beta Test

I’m finally testing out a new gallery today. It’s pretty intuitive, and should need no explanation how to use it. C’mon, be adventurous and give it a try!

That so called museum is selling shirts
and pawning off faux treasures in wanna be auctions.It has deteriorated in interest for years! The history was done right and plagiarized and they still haven’t made up for the
fraud they committed…When they do it might be worth something. I ignore anything they do.

[quote comment=”84498″]Excellent points springtime – I haven’t posted in this thread in almost 2 weeks (but let’s revive it), and 99% of my posts on this board are before 5pm, so I must not have a social life outside of this board. . . because everyone’s social life starts at 7:30am and ends at 5pm. Or is that when I’m working? Hmmmm. 🙄 FTR, I don’t hate kids and I certainly wasn’t posting at 10pm on a holiday weekend.[/quote]

Just ignore douchebag Springtime – s/he is just trying to turn the feelings s/he has for his/herself on someone else. It’s always obvious by use of the word “bitter.”

Katie Scarlett clearly doesn’t like children. She clearly doesn’t like a lot of things. What she does clearly like is this message board. In fact, it seems to be the bulk of her social life. I ignore her. She turns up in every post, bitches, whines and is negative and rude. She’s rather sad. When she annoys you, just remember at least the Hoboken411 website doesn’t constitute YOUR social life. If it did, you’d surely by bitter, surly and obnoxious too.
