7th Annual Hoboken Baby Parade
5/19/2008 Gallery Update:
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!
See original announcement after the jump!
See last years entry for a description. Rain Date is Sunday, June 1st. Don’t want a wet baby now, do we?
