Jefferson Township Day Parade

Township Parade returns to Jefferson Township Day!

The 30th annual Jefferson Township Day celebration is getting closer, and the Jefferson Arts Committee is extremely happy to announce that the Township Parade along Weldon Road will return this coming July 9th.  Parade Chairperson Mike Murphy with members of American Legion Post #423 have been working hard to ensure that the parade returns in all its glory and that the lineup is exciting so everyone will come out and enjoy it on Saturday, July 9 beginning at 11am in Jefferson Township,  NJ.

Right now, the lineup will be led by the Jefferson Township High School Golden Falcons Marching Band, and several groups have already committed to participate either as marchers, in vehicles, on bicycles, or on floats: The Fusion Drum and Bugle Corps, Jefferson Township Historical Society, Daughters and Sons of the American Revolution, Berkshire Valley Presbyterian Church (vehicle), Jefferson Township Boy Scouts,  Jefferson Township Cub Scouts, Operation Children (float), Country Day School, Oak Ridge Martial Arts Academy, Jefferson Township Fire Companies No. 1 & 2, Milton First Aid Squad, Jefferson Rescue Squad,  and Legion Motorcycles /American Legion Riders.  Murphy is lining up some other groups and they will be announced once they officially commit to participate.

There will be convertibles transporting dignitaries and Grand Marshalls Kathleen Damerel and James Perrier – Mayor Felter’s 2015 Citizens of the Year. 

Murphy hopes that other township organizations, groups, churches, schools, etc. will still come forward.  If you or your group/organization would be interested in participating in this old-fashioned township parade, please contact Murphy at 908-208-5190 or at as soon as possible.
