6th Annual Hoboken Baby Parade
Celebrate the Next Generation in the 6th Annual Hoboken Baby Parade, Sunday, May 20
With the city’s recent population boom, it’s not surprising that this year’s 6th Annual Hoboken Baby Parade on Sunday, May 20, is shaping up to be the biggest yet, with a record number of sponsors. Dating back to an early 20th century tradition, the Baby Parade was revived by the Museum in 2002 as a chance for families to dress up their youngsters and compete for “loving cup” trophies for in three categories: Best Dressed Child, Most Creative Carriage, and Best Dressed Family.
The festivities start at 1 p.m. in Sinatra Park, and all Hoboken children up to 5 years old and accompanied by a caregiver are invited to participate. Registration for the event is free, and families are encouraged to arrive early to sign in. Trophy winners will be featured in the next newsletter and online at www.hobokenmuseum.org. (Parade rain date is June 3.)
The following local businesses are sponsoring trophies for the best-dressed kids in each category in the following levels:
