What better way to kick off the summer season than with a parade!
Each year, Manalapan Township celebrates Memorial Day with a parade down Main Street!
It is a wonderful opportunity for marchers and spectators to show their community spirit by celebrating Memorial Day together, as a township.
The parade starts at Manalapan's Municipal Complex, travels past the Recreation Center through the heart of Englishtown and finishing up at the American Legion Hall on Sanford Street.
As a Girl Scout Leader and Mom, I've been marching with my kids for years and think I will miss it some day!
Families line the street waving and cheering. Parade marchers come prepared with treats to throw to the kids who are watching and eagerly waiting to snatch a lollipop or piece of candy!
Manalapan High School Marching Band led the way followed by numerous Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops. There were police cars and fire trucks, and even Uncle Sam made an appearance on stilts!!
There were representatives from Manalapan's local government and many were hoping for their 15 minutes of fame when the local news channel showed up!
Last, and most certainly not least, on hand were many township veterans showing their support and pride as the community came together to remember the many people who gave their life for their country and to support the American soldiers who risk their lives every day for our safety.
I hope all my Manalapan neighbors, friends and family had a wonderful, safe Memorial Day Weekend! Best wishes for a very fun filled summer!
