Ridgefield Park Fourth of July Parade

5-July-2019
  On Saturday-4-July-2020 the Village of Ridgefield Park, NJ was able to hold  their 126th annual Independence Day Celebration. Two years after their incorporation as an Independent Community their first Fourth of July Celebration was held in 1894.  This marks the oldest continuous celebration in the State of New Jersey. This years event started with the reading of the Declaration of Independence and flag raising at Memorial Plaza on Euclid St. 

   The the Ridgefield Park Volunteer Fire Department and the Baby & Youth Parade were canceled this year due to health and safety concerns. However the Ridgefield Park Civic Parade was still able to be held.  In-order for the participants and viewers to maintain a safe distance the event was an all motorized affair.  The parade route was also extended to allow the viewers more locations to watch the caravan pass by. The parade was headed by this year's Grand Marshal Joan Carlson.  Next can cars carrying Ridgefield Park Mayor John Anlian and members of the Ridgefield Park Board of Commissioners passed by.  A number of local and civic groups were represented as part of the procession.  The majority of the vehicles that took part were from Emergency Services from near by towns.  Members of the Ridgefield Park Police, Fire,  Ambulance and Rescue squads led the displayed. They were jointed by Companies from Bogota, Dumont, Carlsadt, Little Ferry and Ridgefield. They added to the festivities with a loud and colorful display of lights and sirens.
