Hoboken's annual Memorial Day Parade—among the oldest continuous parades in New Jersey—will march up Washington Street for a 116th year Wednesday night.

The parade will assemble at 6 p.m. and step off from City Hall at 1st and Washington streets at 6:30 p.m. The parade route will continue northbound on Washington Street to the reviewing stand in front of Hoboken Elks Lodge at the corner of 10th Street.

You rang Cassandra? I haven't been looking for 2500 years (I'm not that old) but the good news is we've found a whole gang of honest politicians right here in Hoboken. In a city in which 2 mayors have been taken away in handcuffs in just the last 10 years calling an mild exaggeration about a 116 year old tradition dishonest is a bit childish. As for Rory, do you really think having a graduate degree from Princeton is something to be embarrassed about? You really should think before you post especially when using your real name since when you post really stupid things like that it reflects badly on you not on Mr. Melli.

He's very busy threatening to sell his store (probably because he hates the HPU).

Awwww, everyone coming out to pull hair today. Happy to speak my mind freely, unlike you bozos that find the need to hide behind fake names. Juan i think got his degrees in the mail, from this, to the phony missing dog named Lucky post, i'd say he is batting 1000 this week. Just more lies from those we pay to trust, nothing new, drive thru fake named dirtbags

Do you really think the Lucky story came from Mr. Melli? You certainly do have some oddball ideas. Hoboken has always had its colorful characters maybe some day you'll be a piece of Hoboken oddball lore.
