Support Our Veterans Parade
Sunday, November 6th

CLIFTON, NJ – The Veterans Parade Committee hopes you will be cheering for our Veterans at the annual Clifton Veterans Day Parade on Sunday 11/6/16. Our men and women have made sacrifices for us so we can enjoy our  freedom, now it is our turn to prove to them that we are grateful for their service.

The 2016 Clifton Veterans Day parade will kick off at 2 PM from the Athenia Veterans Post, Huron Avenue Clifton. The parade is dedicated to both our past and present veterans. The Showband of the Northeast –  our Clifton High School Mustang Marching Band – will again lead the parade along with bands from surrounding cities, marchers from Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Avenue of Flags volunteers, American Legion and VFW posts, military transports and floats carrying many veterans. The parade route will take the marchers up Huron Avenue to Van Houten Avenue to  the City Hall Complex where the annual tribute to our Veterans will commence.

Organizations who would like to participate may call organizers Keith Oakley at 201-774-6666 or Frank Gaccione at 973-773-3788. Please support the parade by greeting the marchers along the parade route and at city hall. Clifton is one of the few cities still conducting a parade because of the dedication of volunteers who raised the needed funds. Please support the efforts of these volunteers and line the parade route and cheer them on. Bring your chair, fly a flag, wear red, white and blue and cheer loud.

If you have any questions on the parade, please call co-coordinators Keith Oakley at 201-774-6666 or Frank Gaccione at 973-773-3788. If you would like to make a donation to offset the rising costs of holding the parade, please send your check, payable to Clifton Veterans Parade Committee and mail it to: Clifton Veterans Parade Committee, c/o Clifton City Hall, 900 Clifton Avenue, Clifton, NJ 07013.
