SOUTH AMBOY – The city’s annual Memorial Day parade and celebration is being planned for Saturday, May 21. Organizers hope that the early date will encourage more participation.
The parade will begin at 1 p.m. After lining up at the Knights of Columbus on 4th Street, the parade will proceed down Stevens Avenue to John Street and up Broadway, finishing at City Hall.
Officials are searching for South Amboy’s oldest living veteran to participate in the festivities. Call Karen at 1-732-525-5961 for more information.
There will be a Patriotic Pooch Contest immediately following the parade at Station Square on Broadway. Dogs will be judged on looks and personality.
